The advanced technique of “Ikomi” developed by Miyama enabled to realize the complex form of the cloud-shaped handle. And the detailing in Peranakan blue color, which symbolizes Singapore is applied on the saucer by using the technique of “Risen-yaki”. This product is filled with the essence of Singaporean design as well as the craftwork of Miyama.
