Traditional Glazed Plate (Grey)

Traditional Glazed Plate (Grey)


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 a glaze called Kohiki (粉引), also known as Kofuki (粉吹き). The name is derived from its powder-like appearance, which is formed as a result of coating the exterior surface with a white slip before applying a translucent glaze. The glaze reveals a light pink colour resulting from the air reacting to the glaze during the firing process.
