Kurinuki is a Japanese method of working by hollowing solid pieces of clay. They can be round, square, or have a more organic shape. I love making kurinuki pieces because they allow me to practice my hands, to let ideas come, or sometimes to just let me play with clay.
This set is great for sake, as each cup holds more or less 1.20 oz, but it can be also used for holding spices, taking a nice and strong shot of espresso, holding a candle...
One cup is slightly bigger than the other. If you like asymmetric, uneven little objects, these are for you.

Stoneware glazed on the outside with a teal blueish color and on the inside with white matte glaze. The base of the cups is also glazed with white matte.
Microwave and dishwasher safe.
