Sue ware cup Kofun/250-581CE

The cup is one of the few vessel shapes that survived from the appearance of Sue ware until its end.
It is also a daily tableware that has a purpose like a tea bowl in modern times, and it is a universal shape that continues from ancient earthenware to the present day.
For this reason, I believe that it is a vessel that can be used as a standard for observing the variations in lifestyles and the styles of pottery from time to time.

For example, the pottery unearthed from a family of about five people who ran a farm in the 6th century includes 1 Sue ware cup body, 3 lids, 5 earthenware cups, 6 large and small earthenware pots, earthenware, and 1 vessel. , There is a survey report that it was Sueki Teibin 2. This is what you might think of as the average tableware of the time, but the cup is a clue to how people lived back then. Archeology is interesting.

The 7th-century vessel shape, which rises gently from the hill, like this one.
It seems that you can feel the tension when you touch the thinly baked skin that has been hardened to gray.

Being universal over time. To be beautiful even to frays and threads.
I think it's a matter of how deeply useful it is.

You can throw wildflowers, make tea, and enjoy it in your own way.
