pinkshirtsandcarwrecks collection: japanese stoneware mugs

i'm a collector and much to steve's dismay, when i get into something i really get into it. i really like 70s stoneware mugs and have amassed quite a collection, (more than i have hooks).  i've started selling a few in my vintage shop for that very reason.

made in japan, most have a relief design or hand painted pattern and often are speckled. we have open shelving in the kitchen and like to see them hanging there all in a row. my absolute favorite is the yellow one with the birds. second is the orla kiley-like flowers. i like that they all sort of match without actually matching.

here's a japanese stoneware roundup if you're interested in starting your own retro collection, or just want one to put your sharpies in.
