Murakami makes simple and beautiful wares that bring a sense of elegance to the tea room. His gaiwan are composed of graceful curves, and are perfect for gently coaxing the full depth of flavors from your tea. The rims of the gaiwan and yunomi are made thin and even, perfect for easy pouring and comfortable drinking. With a smooth glaze and light, balanced weight, each piece is a pleasure to hold as it is used. The #3 yunomi is made from clay that Murakami personally harvests from the local mountains. He hopes that each piece will bring joy and beauty to your tea time.
