Pottery For The Planet - Shino-Yaki Travel Cup Regular

The Shino-Yaki cup is produced by Pottery for the Planet's very own Potters Stephen Roberts and Rob Natoil.

The name Shino-Yaki is a Japanese term for a particular style born in the 16th century during the Golden Age of Japanese pottery. Shino ware was widely sought after for its humble aesthetic and suited the wabi-sabi style of the Zen Buddhist tea masters.

Shino glazes can be a combination of thick snow-white to red scorch marks and each Shino Yaki Planet Cup varies in these characteristics - not one is ever the same. Each cup honouring and resembling the ancient techniques of pottery.

Stevie first used Shino glaze when working for Ian Reid at Flaxton Gardens Pottery and continued to learn about Shino Yaki with a friend and mentor Rowley Drysdale. He had the privilege of seeing some of the original Shino pottery in Japan.
