Please contact us for pictures of currently available pieces!

The following pieces are examples of Nishi's work. All are sealed with glaze and hold liquid. Additionally, they can be used in the microwave and washed in the dishwasher. There are two pictures for each, including a close-up. You can see the style, glaze, price, and product number to the right of each picture, as well as the availability. Note that each cup is one-of-a-kind, so if you are purchasing one labeled "Several available," the cup you receive may differ slightly in shape and glaze color. That's the fun of pottery!
