*Only teacups are available in this online store. (The saucer is not included.)
Each teacup and saucer set is crafted using the modern Japanese ceramic technique known as Nerikomi. This method involves combining colored clay to decorate the ceramics' body itself, resulting in a unique and striking design.
These tea sets are made from high-quality porcelain and are colored with natural iron minerals to produce a beautiful burgundy hue. Inspired by the colors of shells and pebbles found on the shores of Washington State's Olympic Peninsula, I have recreated these rustic and alluring shades.
The surface is polished without glaze, creating a modern texture. Moreover, the body of the teacup absorbs the tannins from tea, resulting in a smooth and rich flavor.
With its artful and luxurious design, our teacup set is perfect for your tea time.

Care Instructions for Stain Resistance:
Although this item has an unglazed finish, it is fired at a high temperature, which makes it somewhat stain-resistant. However, like other ceramics, tea stains may eventually appear with prolonged use. To minimize staining, rinse the item with water immediately after use and avoid leaving tea inside. You can also wash it in a dishwasher. If washing by hand, use a mild detergent, rinse thoroughly under running water, and dry it in a well-ventilated area before storing.
In stock item, orders are shipped within 2 business days (Mon-Fri ~4:00 pm).
Because items in this store are made in small quantities, there is usually only a small stock of each item.
Inventory may be moved to other store without notice. Please purchase your favorite items in advance.
- Hand wash: Most of Saori M Stoneware items are dishwasher-safe, but hand washing is recommended. Please use mild soap and warm water. Avoid harsh chemicals or metal sponges that can scratch the surface of the glaze or clay.
- Avoid extreme temperature changes: Sudden changes in temperature can cause handmade ceramics to crack or break. Avoid placing ceramics directly on a stovetop or in the oven, as well as placing them in the freezer.
- Do Not Stack: To avoid scratches or chips, use protective padding such like papers, cloth when stacking ceramic dishes or bowls to store.
- Dry Storing: Avoid storing ceramics in a damp or humid environment in long term, as it can cause mold to the piece.
