The Shimo cup is a unique vessel designed for a green tea consumption, traditionally used for Japanese tea ceremony. Made of delicate clay although simultaneously resistant to damage due to the process of ceramic firing at a temperature of 1160°C, the mug astonishes both with its lightweight and durability. After the firing, the cups are glazed and decorated. Irregular, splashy dots on the cup are made with a painting brush, so every cup may vary slightly.
The Shimo cup was created as a result of Moya’s cooperation with Baobab studio – a ceramic workshop founded over 10 years ago by Natalia and Olaf. The couple fell in love with the realm of ceramics, which led them to establishing their own studio in the Polish countryside. They treat ceramics not only as a way of living, but also as their biggest passion – which you can tell by the attention and effort put into creation of each and every of their unique pieces.
