Set of 2 ultra-thin white porcelain cups
Egg shell cup
Mr. Tomotake x Mr. Maru Nao Ceramics
Marunao Ceramics Co., Ltd. has been producing porcelain for export to Europe since the Meiji era.
It is run only by the family, centered on Masataka Okuda, the sixth head of the family.
Marunao Ceramics Co., Ltd., which has been in business for over 100 years, is known as a kiln capable of making porcelain called "egg shell", which is as thin and light as an egg shell.
The soft soil in a plaster mold is stretched and molded so that it can be pulled up thinly with just the sensation of a trowel and fingertips. It seems that there are only a few houses.
The feature of the egg shell is that it is as thin as about 1 mm, and when you hold it over the light, it looks slightly transparent. At first glance, it seems scary to hold it in your hand, but it is stronger than you think because it is baked at a high temperature.
If you pour a cold drink, you can feel the temperature directly through the container, and the unique mouthfeel that does not have a foreign body sensation due to its thinness makes you feel that the taste of the drink is maximized.
This time, a collaboration between Marunao Ceramics Co., Ltd. and Tomotake, who produces original cloth miscellaneous goods, has made it possible to make egg shell cups.
"Tomotake" is the name of the unit when Masahiro Asatake, who works as a writer with cloth as the main material, and Hiroko Asatake, a designer, are making things together. From the desire to incorporate works as art into our lives as scenery, we finish cloth works by mud dyeing and embroidery as everyday items.
The cat design on this cup is also printed on the original mud-dyed cloth and transferred to the unglazed surface by the stamping method. After that, a transparent glaze is applied and baked at a high temperature, but the pattern penetrates into the melted glaze, causing subtle blurring. However, the bokeh makes me feel calm, and I feel that it leads to the kindness of the natural body.
I think one of Tomotake's charms is that it's like an exquisite sense of balance that isn't over-created, but as a result, I think that nuance was well expressed in this cup as well. (Kurashiki Design Planning Office)
