Made from red clay by a family run kiln in Seto, Japan, each cup is unique. Once we receive the cups from Japan, we then fill them with pure soy wax in our Sydney studio. Designed around re-using, each candle is made to be used as a Japanese tea cup after it's burnt out. For our Sydney friends, we offer refills for $15.

 

Story

We first visited this workshop in 2019 and fell in love with their glazes and clay colours. This particular workshop is family run and everything is very hands on. We designed this cup and chose the glaze while we visited the factory.

Ingredients & Craft

Located in Surry Hills, Sydney, is our studio where we pour all our candles by hand. Using pure soy wax and boutique fragrances. Each of our candles are designed to be used past their burn time as they are all Japanese cups.
Simply remove the wick, wash with hot soapy water and you can drink tea from it, or bring it back to the store for a $15 refill.
