UWAGUSURI LATTE MUG
“uwagusuri” stands for glaze in Japanese. Overglaze enamels are low-temperature glazes that give ceramics a more decorative, glassy look. A piece is fired first, this initial firing being called the glost firing, then the overglaze decoration is applied, and it is fired again.
This technique is called Kakewake or Nagashikake, where glazes of various different colours are poured on the surface so that the spontaneous flow of the glazes create a design. It requires precision, skill and talent to make sure that the glazes and enamels are seamlessly surfaced to provide functionality and desired aesthetic.
This mug was hand made in Shiga prefecture, Kyoto.
