Traditional Glazed Rice Bowl (Grey)

Traditional Glazed Rice Bowl (Grey)


This series of ceramic ware is produced in the renowned porcelain-making village of Arita in Saga prefecture. The bowls 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 rice bowls are humble in size and form, making them ideal as simple items to have for everyday use.

This ceramic bowl 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.
