Traditional Glazed Plate (Black)

Traditional Glazed Plate (Black)


This series of ceramic ware is produced in the renowned porcelain-making village of Arita in Saga prefecture. The plates come in a range of glazes using the traditional colours of Japan, which are uniquely rooted in nature. The glazed surfaces display a beautiful interplay with light, revealing a subtle depth in colour. These ceramic plates are humble in size and form, making them ideal as simple items to have for everyday use.

This ceramic plate is made from Shigaraki clay, which is sourced from the renowned pottery-making region in Shiga prefecture. This plate uses a primitive firing technique called ‘Yakishime’ (焼き〆), in which unglazed wares are fired at high temperatures using only firewood to allow the surface to form a natural glaze.
