Mug in white with silver polka dotsYoshimitsu Nakasono
This white mug with silver polka dots and a silver glazed interior has a cool, pop style and is made by Japanese potter Yoshimitsu Nakasono.
The inside surface of the mug is smoothly finished in a silver glaze. This gives a beautiful sparkle and shine. The outside surface has a matt finish which is comfortable to hold. The silver dots bring bright, playful contrast to a minimal, elegant body. The hand crafted uneven shape and dots create a unique look.
It is the perfect mug for drinking tea or coffee. You might even want to use this mug for cold drinks, because of its modern, poppy style. The combination of silver and white colors creates a striking presence on your dining table and in your cupboard. You can also buy a matching pitcher to create a set.
