Gagyu guinomi sake cup - White Heron
The 13th generation traditional craftsman Yokoishi Gagyu has created this delightful guinomi sake cup graced with dignified herons using a 250 year old brush technique reintroduced by his father.
Slip is brushed across the red clay surface of the cup to produce a marbled effect, reminiscent of grass swaying in the breeze. The heron is a trademark
of this particular artist.
