Guinomi ” Sake cup", Geppaku , Hosai XVI

Hosai XVI

The color of Geppaku glaze varies greatly depending on the changes in firing, the firing position in the kiln, and the way and thickness of the glaze, but another factor is the color of the base material. When white clay is applied between the base and the glaze, as in this sake cup, the color becomes brighter and more vivid.
The most outstanding feature of this sake cup is the part of Geppaku glaze where you can see the bare surface of the ground, like a hole in the glaze. The three places on the front and back are my fingerprints that are held while applying the glaze. Fingerprints. In the world of pottery, this has often been admired as a scenic beauty. In particular, many tea bowls used for tea ceremonies have left traces of adding the "wabi" atmosphere. I also leave fingerprints on most of my Geppaku glazed tea bowls. And when it comes to the size of a sake cup, the presence of finger marks increases enormously. So, when it is well fitted, it looks more and more attractive. This sake cup is a typical example. he pale color of Geppaku glaze. The white clay peeking out from the glaze creates a perfect balance with the color of the base.
