Brown stoneware cup made in Tokonamé-Aichi Prefecture by master craftsman Shimizu Genji (1945-) in the Hokujo kiln.

The town of Tokonamé is specialized in the art of ceramics and particularly known for the terracotta teapot. Tokonamé is the oldest and most important of the six ancient pottery centers of Japan with Shigaraki, Bizen, Tanba, Echizen and Seto. Ceramics have been produced there since the end of the Heian period (11th century), and traces of these productions can be found in Kamakura or on the northern coast of Honshū. Tokoname pottery is now designated as an important intangible cultural asset of Japan. The current Hokujo kiln is run by master craftsman Shimizu Genji.
