Old Iga ware sake cups made during the Azuchi-Momoyama period.
It spreads out like a hat on a flat bottom.
It is thought that it was originally a bottle lid, but was repurposed as a sake cup.
For this reason, it is fired with the mouth facing down, and the inside is unglazed, allowing you to feel the smooth texture of the fired clay.
Since the outside is fired facing upwards, you can feel the changes inside the kiln from the bottom to the body, which is typical of Ko Iga.
When used as a sake cup, dirt will adhere to the bottom and part of the shoulder.
The appearance of the torso varies depending on the location of the fire, and some parts have a milky-white luster due to being covered with firewood ash and melting.
The thickly coated areas are green in color, and there is a pool of vidro glaze around the edges of the mouth.
One-third of the body is charred, and the black and rough glaze surface contrasts with the natural glaze, making it a spectacular sight.

Due to the nature of old Iga ware, there is sand and soil attached to the surface. Also, although the surface is rough, there are no cracks.
