This beautiful Sakura(cherry blossoms) shaped sauce plate is from the RYOUKA series of Usukiyaki.
The petal design complements the food as if it were a picture frame. The bottom is also in the shape of Sakura, making this beautiful design look like a blooming flower even when sauces are served in it. The wavy rim casts shadows on the plate and table, creating a beautiful look.
Ideal size for use as a sauce plate. It is also versatile for serving small dishes such as cheese, nuts, condiments, etc. It can also be combined on top of a larger plate or in a Bento lunch box for a more stylish and sophisticated food presentation.
Usukiyaki is produced using a technique called "Katauchi" (molding). The sheet-shaped-clay is placed on a plaster mold, and is shaped with the fingers including each petal. This process gives the work a handmade feel that cannot be achieved through mass production, and gives it a stoneware-like appearance even though it is a porcelain piece.
This series was inspired by dignified flowers such as lotus, cherry blossoms, and Kousa dogwood that bloom in the fields and mountains of Usuki in Oita, which is rich in nature.
Since all products are made by hand, there may be individual differences in shape and color.
We hope you will enjoy them as the warmth of handmade products.
