When Satoshi Tsuji envisioned the 224 Porcelain Vestino Cup, he wanted something that would become intimate to its user. Simple but striking, the hand-stitched leather sleeve insulates the quality porcelain, and is designed to age with use to give it a well-loved character. To wash the cup, the sleeve easily slips off, giving it its name Vestino - a portmanteau of the Italian "vestito" (dress) and the suffix "ino" for "little."
Based in Ureshino, Saga Prefecture, 224 Porcelain is a small pottery that brings together Hizen Yoshida porcelain with young designers. Hizen Yoshida potteries have a history of more than 400 years, producing high-quality porcelain in the styles of neighboring areas, including Arita ware and Hasami ware. This unique position of having no specific aesthetic but able to produce that of many others has made Hizen Yoshida potteries especially skilled and flexible and 224 Porcelain matches that artistry with brand new and original designs.
