How to choose a blue pot

Even though it is called blue pottery, there are various brightness of colors and patterns.

"What kind of pottery is eye-catching, gorgeous, and easy to use?"

For those who are looking for such a pottery, we recommend the calm blue pottery.

For example, Mino ware vessels

While it has an eye-catching gorgeousness, the color is a little dark, so it's easy to match it with food.

The size is about 15 cm, which is perfect for serving plates and snack plates, so it is easy to use as an accent.

If you are buying a blue pottery for the first time, this is the pottery you should try.

From here, we will introduce recommended products for each type of blue.

Turquoise blue that looks especially great on summer dishes

The most gorgeous and most popular item to use especially in summer is turquoise blue pottery.

The bright colors are refreshing and make you feel cool just by looking at it.

Color has a big impact, so if you serve brightly colored or white dishes, it will look even more gorgeous.

It brings out the vibrancy of summer vegetables such as tomatoes even more.

It will make your salad look fresher and more delicious.

Easy to use dyed vessels

A blue plate that makes your food look vivid.
However, many people may feel that it might be difficult to use an all-blue plate.

In such cases, we recommend that you try using dyed containers.

Dyeed utensils have been on the Japanese dining table for a long time, so they go well with standard Japanese side dishes.

By simply using a white plate with a blue pattern as the main dish, you can create a much cooler impression.
The white color of the container creates a sense of bareness and gives it a well-balanced look.

Dark blue pottery, such as indigo, has a stronger blue impression and is easier to incorporate than dyed pottery.

It has an elegant atmosphere and is easy to match with your interior.

It doesn't give the impression of being as heavy as black pottery, and it has just the right amount of freshness.

The dark tones really bring out the bright colors of the vegetables.
