Creator: Taketoshi Ito
70,000 yen ( tax inc.)
Born in 1981. After studying architecture at university, he went on to study at a pottery factory in Mashiko, Tochigi Prefecture, and became an independent potter. He is one of those potters whose works are hard to find because of his popularity in Japan and abroad. Even though the bowls are simple, they are characterized by their tense forms and details, reminding us of Buddhist altars.
The pottery is made of magnetic clay and sprayed with iron, giving it the appearance of metal. The mouth rim is decorated with a traditional Japanese design called wabana. The bowls are very thin, but despite their appearance, they are not fragile. The largest and second largest bowls have enough height to be suitable for hot soup.
※The color and expression of the bowls may vary due to their handmade nature.
