Egg Shell Katakuchi

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

A one and only porcelain

This Arita porcelain is characterized by a fluffy cocoon-like texture and a delicate egg shell-like thinness of less than 1 mm. The artisan’s pure spirit is evident in their pursuit of such utmost thinness and in the whiteness of the surface. It is paired perfectly with the egg shell sake cup set of the same series.
