Asuta Mochizuki is a potter who has creating varieties of bowls and plates in the countryside of Saitama. The size, touch, and fit are all well thought out, but the works have the momentum of creation. They are used everyday for a wide variety of things - breakfast, coffee, evening shots, and dinner. Their chic look enhances the taste of food that they contain.
This is a petit sake cup, choco, which has an earthy colour and calming appearance. When you drink sake, people enjoy sipping a small amount at a time; when you empty the cup, your companion pours another shot for you. This interaction is part of the pleasure. You can also use it as a small dipping bowl for sauce or for holding finger foods.
Do not use in a microwave or dishwasher. Water may be released at the beginning of use. This is natural reaction of Japanese dishes and a sign that they are made naturally from soil. After several uses, water will no longer be released. Over time there will be subtle changes in color and texture, which is also a natural reaction, and adds to the depth and beauty of this piece.
