SOBACHOCO KUROMIKAGE


The Black Granite line is dignified and composed with a special glaze and uses the same earth materials as Kokudei in the SOBA CHOCO Plain series.

Copper glaze
Yellow spots appear through the dark brown as the glaze contains manganese.

Kairagi Crawling Glaze
The beautiful crackled kanyu pattern is formed by handbrushing fine white earth onto the surface to ensure the glaze cracks.

Oil Drops
These cups are characterized by spot patterns that resemble oil droplets.

Straw Ash Glaze
These cups are made from the ash glaze of rice straw, which forms stark white specks in the milky white surface.

Black Candy Glaze
These cups are finished with a type of iron glaze, which forms yellowish specks called kisoba on the dark surface.

The soba choco, whose trapezoidal shape has gone unchanged in the 400 years since its invention, traces its origins to Hizen (present-day Saga and Nagasaki Prefectures), which is home to the port of Imari, from which Imari porcelain spread throughout Japan.
Contrary to its name, the soba choco was never intended for soba. It was originally used as a small bowl to hold side dishes such as sashimi, salads, and shiokara preserve at celebrations and kaiseki meals. It wasn’t until the Edo period that soba become popular among the general public. People would often use their soba choco to indulge in a quick aperitif called sobamae before filling it with dipping sauce for soba, a tradition that soon caught on across Japan. Huge numbers of designs were created, reflecting the trends and culture of the eras in which they were made.
Baba Shoten fires its ceramics in the town of Hasami, Nagasaki, a cradle of porcelain manufacturing in Japan. We deliver a wide variety of soba choco that utilize a rich history of techniques unique to the Hasami area. Culture and craftsmanship in every cup.
