Simple and elegant porcelain mug ideal for morning coffee or afternoon tea. Cast in one piece from a blend of porcelain and red earth clay. Stackable storage. Made in Japan since 1973. A companion to our Japanese Ceramic Tea Pot. (
The curved handle of this porcelain mug features a resting spot for your thumb, making it an agreeable companion for your morning coffee or afternoon tea. The divot in the handle also acts as a guide, so that you never pour too much and always serve the right amount. The designer of this series named it “Moderato,” after the Italian music terminology for a moderate tempo that is not too fast or slow, but just right—hopefully your next tea time will take note and follow suit.
The mug was made by Ceramic Japan Co., a ceramic studio formed in 1973 in the city of Seto, a locale so famous for its ceramics that their wares have a special name: Setomono. Their innovative designs, such as the “Crinkle Super Bag Vase K-2” designed by Makoto Komatsu, have landed them a place in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
This mug is dishwasher safe.
