Utensils with a simple expression

A cute oval plate with a cute flower pattern. The Kasumi floret pattern is created by drawing each petal one by one by using the direction of the brush. Mr. Kato's careful and detailed craftsmanship shines through. The moss-like deep green of the Oribe glaze is beautiful, and the incisions that spread throughout the vessel add depth of flavor. It has a somewhat nostalgic atmosphere, and will create a peaceful time at your dining table.

Easy to use size

Top with side dishes for one person, such as seared bonito and two spring rolls. You can also serve it with marinated and other cold dishes. It is also useful as a serving plate when sharing food such as tempura on a large plate. Top with cake or cookies and you'll have a dessert plate that looks like something you'd find at an old folk cafe. Simple medium plates are a great addition to your everyday dining table, from Japanese to Western food to sweets.

Things you should know before purchasing

What creates the expression of a pottery is things that cannot be seen in mass-produced items, such as spots, scratches, unevenness in the glaze, shading, and bending of the shape. The charm of handmade pottery is that it may have pinholes, intrusions, distortions, etc., and is not perfectly arranged, but each one is slightly different in color, size, and shape, and no two are exactly the same. Please enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime encounter as these are the unique characteristics of handmade pottery. 【Individual difference】 The size of the pottery and handle differs from piece to piece. [Uneven color/uneven baking] The glaze is carefully applied one by one by hand, so the glaze may not be applied evenly. During firing, the temperature varies depending on the location of the kiln, resulting in uneven firing. [Other notes]
〇There may be some large scratches or small scratches, but you can use it without any problems. 〇Products that have passed inspection by the pottery and artist are inspected again and delivered to the customer. ■For more information, please see here.

Seto ware

Seto ware is a general term for pottery made mainly in Seto City, Aichi Prefecture, which is a rare production area in Japan where both pottery and porcelain are fired. Ceramics are characterized by decorations that make full use of glaze, as exemplified by the country's traditional craft ``Akatsu ware,'' while porcelain is decorated with beautiful blue colors using a pigment called Gosu, typified by ``Seto Sometsuke ware.'' It's a feature. There is such a wide variety of pottery that it is said that ``There is nothing that cannot be made in Seto.''

What you need to know before purchasing

The appearance of vessels is created by spots, blurs, unevenness of glaze, shading, and deflection of shape, which cannot be found in mass-produced vessels. The charm of handmade vessels lies in the fact that no two vessels are exactly alike, with pinholes, penetrations, distortions, and the like, and that the colors, size, and shape of each piece vary slightly from one to another. The coloring, size, and shape of each piece is slightly different, and the charm of handmade vessels lies in the fact that they are not exactly the same. Individual differences
The finish is relatively uniform, but because it is handmade, there are individual differences in shape, size, color, and so on. Uneven color/uneven firing
Because the glaze is applied by hand, the glaze may not be applied evenly. The firing process is also uneven because the temperature varies depending on the firing location in the kiln. Other Notes
