About Sake Cups
Kiyomizu ware (清水焼, Kiyomizu-yaki) is a type of Kyō ware traditionally from Gojōzaka district near Kiyomizu Temple, in Kyoto.
The history of Kiyomizu ware dates back to the 16th century.
The stamps at the back of the cups (the last photos) to show that each cup was hand-crafted by a Japanese crafts man 林山 Rinzan in Kyoto, Japan.
Their kiln was established in the Meiji era 1889 and it is now the 4th generation. They are manufacturing ceramics not only for convenience to use in every day life but also to enrich our lives.
They use a wide variety of glazes that cannot be found anywhere else to express colorful hues.
