The TY Tea Cup is part of the TY Standard collection.
Following the tradition of Arita pottery, designer Teruhiro Yanagihara developed a new series of ceramics using the traditional ingredient of clay made from crushed stone, though in a different composition. The result is a high-density kind of clay that makes the pottery items extremely strong and heat and stain resistant.
This teacup is a minimal, multi-functional cup with a fine, glossy glaze in a delicate and display-worthy shape.

About the designer
1616/arita japan products are produced in the same factories as the original Arita pottery but take a completely different design approach. 1616/arita japan stands for contemporary products that can be used every day, though made with the extraordinary workmanship, thinness, and strength of original Arita ware.
Teruhiro Yanagihara, the creative director of 1616/arita japan, designed the “Standard” series. This series clearly show Yanagihara’s interest in borderless design. Items don’t have predetermined functions but allow different combinations and usages and good stackability among the Standard products. Square plates, for example, can be used as trays and small round plates double as lids. Bowls can be used for both Japanese rice or Western-style morning cereals, while the small cup is made for Italian espresso, it also perfectly serves Japanese sake.
