There is a relationship that develops naturally between an object made by-hand to be held in-hand. It is the promise of this relationship that forms the work of studio YUNOMI. studio YUNOMI is so named in playful acknowledgment of this idea: yunomi as 'you know me'.

Literally translated from Japanese as hot drink, a yunomi is a footed, un-handled cup for everyday tea drinking. Although a traditional ware, the yunomi has become an art form in itself and is now used as often for drinking tea as for drinking coffee, wine, water or for a quiet moment of contemplation.
