Japan's "first frost" inspired the elegant and refined Soukou cup. Its grey-blue background with white and blue flecks conjures up images of winter.
Traditional techniques are used to handcraft the Soukou porcelain cup. The speckled finish on the cup emerges during firing after it has been covered with a reactive glaze.
The set, which was created to complement the Soukou teapot, is an ideal holiday seasonal gift for tea enthusiasts.
