Ekaratsu 8 sun Dish (Hagi)
Eko-karatsu is a representative technique of Karatsu ware with a 400-year history. The pottery is fired with an iron glaze called oniita, in which patterns of grass, trees, flowers, etc. are painted, and then an ash glaze is poured over the top. The exquisite balance between the forcefulness of the brushstrokes and the fine lines that connect them is beautiful, and the surrounding white space makes the patterns stand out even more. This plate is made by molding ceramic clay that has been stretched into a plate shape, which gives it a fluffy softness not found on the potter’s wheel. The rim of the dish makes it look very beautiful and allows the food to stand out. The rim also makes it easy to hold and spill-proof, making it very useful and easy to use.
