12 Yachimun mugs with dynamic charm

Hello! This is Taki from the Uchiru Editorial Department, a pottery market that you can enjoy at home.

In Okinawa, pottery is called "Yachimun." Yachimun is fired using Okinawan water, soil, and firewood, and coral and sugarcane ash are also used for the glaze.

The paintings are characterized by dynamic brushstrokes and range from simple ones that give you a feeling of the warmth of the earth to colorful designs. One of its charms is its plump thickness, and within its beauty there is also a sense of relief.

How about a mug that makes you feel the open tropical breeze while you are at home?

This time I would like to introduce Uchiru's recommended Yachimun mug.
