Mizuno Porcelain Plate (Hexagon)

Mizuno Porcelain Plate (Hexagon)

55.00

The Mizuno Flower range of tableware blends traditional porcelain-making techniques with function for the modern table. These one-of-a-kind pieces are hand thrown on the pottery wheel before being shaped by an old pottery forming technique called ‘katauchi’ - a form of drape moulding which requires precise hand throwing skills. The clay sourced from the mountains of Tobe-cho in Ehime prefecture gives the ceramic body a distinct, ‘gentle white’ colour that emanates a soft ambience on to the dining table.

This series ‘kuchibeni’ (meaning lipstick) takes its name from the unique design of the painted rims, a style of painting in pottery called ‘fuchi sabi’. Following the contours of the white porcelain, the elegant design adds a contemporary touch to the age-old tradition of porcelain-making.

Hexagon (Rinka or Flower)
This design is based on a classic flower shape called ‘rinka’, which is commonly used in Japanese porcelainware. Featuring a hexagonal design that loosely takes its contours from the flower ‘tsubaki’, this wide plate is both versatile for daily use and special occasions.
