Raw Earth Pot
Crafted for us by Japanese ceramicist Isao Kimura of the Rising Kiln. Based in a mountain pottery overlooking the forests of Saitama, Isao’s work is inspired by the earth and sea, volcanoes, fire and sky.
This piece is volcanic, raw, scorched, with a xanthous underglow.
Veteran potter Isao is renowned for his innovative glazes, working in the Oribe style and embracing eccentricity. Organic shapes and unusual piercing of the glaze and characterise the work. Individually handcrafted, each piece is absolutely one-of-a-kind.
Measures approx. 95mm high. For longevity we recommend that you hand wash the piece. Japanese pottery such as this usually has tiny crevices on the surface, which absorb oil and food. It's usual to enjoy the piece changing as it ages, wabi-sabi of sorts. But if you prefer, use the 'medome' technique- presoaking in hot rice water before the first use- to prevent stains.
