The ability to see great beauty in the everyday objects around you is a rare and precious gift. This traditionally crafted porcelain mug from Claska’s ‘Do’ Japanese lifestyle brand is the perfect example of an ordinary object with extraordinary charm and appeal.
Each ‘Do’ mug is hand-crafted in Nagasaki prefecture, Japan, using the ancient artisan techniques of Hasami Yaki. Although these traditional pottery crafting techniques are more than four hundred years old, the pure elegance and softly tapered profile of this Claska mug looks perfect in the modern home.
The inspirational ‘Do’ gallery and brand was launched by Tokyo’s iconic, Claska boutique hotel in 2008. Under the leadership of visionary director, Takeo Okuma, the ‘Do’ philosophy is to exhibit and showcase some of the most authentically beautiful, modern day Japanese lifestyle products available to discerning buyers.
Coffee, tea or chocolate – we invite you to enjoy your favourite drink in this exquisitely appealing Claska ‘Do’ mug.

I bought the white CLASKA DO Mug Cup and I can't help but be thoroughly impressed by every aspect of it. The colour is a creamy, off-white hue with a soft gradient that is only apparent when the light strikes it at a certain angle. The overall shape has proportions that are well fitting, and while it may lack the precision of a machine-made item, its subtle curves speak a story about its provenance - a product of a craftsman who has honed over countless years. The cup is an item that is minimalistic but not minimal; simple but elegant and beautiful in its own handcrafted right and imperfections. Wonderful product :)
The design is so well weighted and balanced. It has become our favorite cup and holds a beautiful cup of coffee. We are now buying other colors!
