Petite mug featuring a remarkably slender handle. Lightweight yet sturdy, it pairs well with other ceramics by Takashi Endo. This small mug features a gorgeous array of organic textures and colors.
Each piece evolves over time, as the active compounds within the open clay absorb the aromas of its surroundings and matures with the memory of each tea it has brewed. The glazed interior walls of the lighter cups allow for interchangeable uses of lighter teas, while the silver and dark cups suggests darker black and pu-erh teas.

Kanagawa-based ceramicist Takashi Endo immerses his creative vision in the essence of "enso," the Japanese interpretation of the circle. It carries expressions of minimalism, elegance, and a strength which drives enlightenment. Delicate lines and sturdy fabrication make each object by Takashi Endo stand out. Self-taught, his potter's work is characterized by thinness, its lightweight and rigid forms, rough textures, and monochromatic tones. Unlike many Japanese potters, Endo admits he is less concerned with the daily functionality of his vessels than producing work that satisfies his creative vision. Endo's work makes a lovely addition to any home nonetheless, whether integrated into daily life or reserved for special occasions.
