Meoto Yunomi Hirose Tanga
This meoto yunomi set reminds me of the delicate potential of a morning sunrise. Created by the famous master potter Hirose Tanga, born in 1939 and whose kiln, called Tenpozan-gama is located in the city of Hagi.
Special pairs of yunomi are called meoto yunomi (meoto means ‘married couple’). Meoto yunomi usually consist of two cups with the same pattern and sometimes in different colours, but different sizes and often slightly different shapes. The larger cup being the ‘husband’ and the smaller being the ‘wife’ cup.
