In Japanese, “shizuku” means “drip.” This original glaze by the young potter Nishi Takayuki melts during firing at 1200-1300°C (2190-2370°F) and then runs down the porcelain. As it cools, it hardens, creating the effect of drips that are about to fall from the edge of the Shibori-dashi.
The gradated blue tones of the glaze, which leave part of the immaculate white Arita-yaki porcelain naked, give this cup an elegant, fresh effect.
Each Shibori-dashi is hand thrown, and the effects of the flow of the glaze are created naturally in the kiln, so each one is different.
