HOW ARE CERAMIC MUGS MADE?
Made by hand, the particularity of each mug stands out. Reflecting the YŌNOBI’s philosophy of beauty thought everyday use, each cup is made for homeware use.
Scrolling through our collection of handmade ceramic mugs, you will undoubtedly notice the unique designs of each set of cups. Where some have huge handles, others have ‘shed’ their handles for a symmetric look.
The difference in style is reflected in the techniques used by each artist. Some artists work with mold-pressing the clay leaving a ‘crackled’ look’. Others use more primitive and specialized burning techniques, changing the colors of the clay by oxidizing the surface with copper.
Some of our handmade ceramic mugs are hand-thrown on the potters’ wheel. They are unique in color, shade, and touch.
