Ceramic Cup - Blue, Ochre and Green Drops
This sand colored teacup is shaped to comfortably fit in the hand and is decorated with drops of three earthy colors: lapis blue, ochre and mountain indigo, a grayish green color originally derived from a plant and used for dyeing in ancient Japan.
The shapes of the drops are unique for each cup, and together with light crazing (fine cracks in the glaze; see the last image), give the cups a warm, rustic touch. Crazing is one of the most popular techniques used in pottery in Japan and is appreciated by connoisseurs and ordinary people alike for the character it gives to the ceramic ware.
