Nicely made and nicely priced set, but if you were expecting black you will be disappointed... The color wasn't a problem for me, so I am very pleased with the set. I expect it will hold up like my other Sango stoneware, which is to say that it is durable, but can be broken in normal use and has some minor issues with glaze cracking and crazing. The glaze on the rim of this set is matte, but not chalky....much like raku glaze in color and texture.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the actual colors of this set are deep blue and gunmetal gray, not black
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. nicely made, with a few minor irregularities in the glaze that add character rather than looking like flaws
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very good aside from the color difference.
