SOBACHOCO WAMON GIN

The popularity of porcelain soba-choco cups soared during the Edo period, giving rise to many different designs. We have chosen five of the most popular and reproduced them in chic silver on grayish clay.

Tako Karakusa (Octopus Vine)
The karakusa pattern shows branching vines that curl outward across the porcelain surface. The unbroken, growing vine signifies prosperity and longevity.

Chrysanthemum Petals
The chrysanthemum is the most popular flower pattern used, long said to be the ageless flower of life.

Cracked Ice
Made in the fashion of kanyu crackled glazes, this pattern is often called hyoretsu, or cracked ice, for the jagged lines that resemble cracks in the ice. The hyoretsu pattern is said to have come from China during the Southern Song dynasty.

Chrysanthemum
The chrysanthemum is the most popular flower pattern used, long said to be the ageless flower of life.

Bamboo Weave
The bamboo weave pattern is just that: a design based on baskets woven from bamboo. This pattern is said to be an effective talisman that wards off evil. Do not put overglaze products in the dishwasher.
