The Sanza cup is a vessel for drinking leaf tea and other infusions. Its classic floral pattern and subdued colours are very easy on the eye. Berries visible on the cup reminded us of hawthorn -Sanzashi (jap.) hence the name.
The vessel was shaped in a mold and then painted by hand which results in its unique and unrepeatable pattern. Paints used to decoration are environment friendly. Ceramic mugs are fired in stoves at a temperature exceeding 1300°C and they are dishwasher safe.
