ReIRABO CUP – Quiet White
USD$21.84 – USD$37.44
Made in Japan
ReIRABO is a reinterpretation of “Irabo” glaze, often found in traditional pottery used for Japanese tea ceremony.
The variable texture of glaze is the beauty of Irabo, however, it is challenging to stabilize and technically difficult to handle for mass-production. After repeated testing, Yumiko has adapted her own original Irabo glaze and developed a selection of tableware that pushes the boundaries of a handmade product.
The ReIRABO cup is available in three sizes:
S for espresso
M for coffee and tea
L for soup, cafe au lait, etc.
The ReIRABO collection also offers Round and Oval Plates in the same colour options. Ideally enjoyed using your own mix and match style.

YUMIKO IIHOSHI PORCELAIN
* * *
Yumiko’s concept is to create a design that is on the boundary between handmade and conventionally manufactured products.
All products are crafted in Japan.
After graduating from Kyoto Saga University of Arts, studying a Porcelain major, Yumiko started her own porcelain collection under her own name.
She designs and oversees the manufacture of porcelain tableware which combines the use of molds for uniformity, with hand glazing by artisans, to ensure each piece has a sense of individuality. Each ceramic glaze and shape is unique and original, taking inspiration from the functionality and pure sense of a vessel.
“It is not something that every single claim is too apparent. I thought that it would be nice to have warmth in design, but not argue too much.”
The aesthetic forms and unique palettes are infused with a sense of nostalgia, inspiring us to reflect and reminisce about time while using it in our daily lives.
