A multifaceted cup crafted from the purest Amakusa porcelain for an addictively tactile experience. Cool to the touch and surprisingly sonorous, the matte exterior contrasts subtly with the glossy curves of its glazed interior.

UTSUÀ is a new porcelain brand from Arita, Japan. The name UTSUÀ (utsuwa) is derived from the Japanese word for ‘vessel’; the Japanese character 器 is used to express human qualities such as tolerance and modesty.

All UTSUÀ products are made using the finest Amakusa clay — one of the purest available in Japan — sourced from the local Arita region. Arita is located in the far south of Japan, on the island of Kyushu, where traditional ceramic culture has been passed down from generation to generation for over 400 years.
