  • These Disney Ceramic Teacups and Plates Are Traditional Kiyomizu Wares From Kyoto

    07.June.2021 | FASHION

    Asahido is now selling a collection of Disney-inspired ceramics made using a traditional Japanese pottery technique known as Kiyomizu which originated in Kyoto.

    Winnie the Pooh Hundred Acre Wood Teacup

    This collection of teacups features hand drawn designs of Winnie the Pooh and his friends relaxing in their home of the Hundred Acre Wood. They are dyed indigo using a traditional dyeing technique known as gosu which makes the colour run deep into the design. There are cups to pick from, one big and one small and both with different designs. More details here (in Japanese).

    Mickey & Minnie Traditional Dyed Pattern Mugs

    These smiley teacups are made using the same dyeing technique and feature Mickey and Minnie made from collages of traditional Japanese patterns that have long been used in Kyoto.

    Disney Princess Plates

    Seven Disney Princesses have been feauted in this hand-painted Kiyomizu ware plate collection, all of which are lined with gorgeous colours including gold. They make for beautiful decorations for any Disney fan’s room.

    Mickey & Minnie Kiyomizu Dolls

    “Rakuyaki” is the name of the hand-mouldered pottery technique used to crafts these Mickey and Minnie Mouse dolls, one which has been used since the Taisho Period. Compared to the other ceramics on this list, these dolls are baked at a lower temperature, giving the colours a softer look. Red and black are classic colour combinations used in this technique, so Mickey and Minnie were the perfect candidates. Only 100 of each will be sold.

    The meal kit is made to capture the feeling that your friends and loved ones are always with you. In the kit, you’ll find a recipe card detailing how to make the food, a lunch mat with an illustration of Pooh and his friends on it, and a message card which you can mail to someone special.
