Traditional Glazed Plate (Red)

Traditional Glazed Plate (Red)


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 type of red clay called Beni Zakura, which takes its name from the Japanese camellia. 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.
