This beautiful chrysanthemum-shaped oval sauce plate is from the KIKKA series of Usukiyaki. The petal design, characteristic of Usukiyaki, complements the food as if it were a picture frame.
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.
The flower-shaped plate follows the original design of Usuki ware. The design is inspired by old documents and existing old Usuki ware, but with a modern twist. The wavy rim cast shadows on the plate and table, creating a beautiful look.
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 is inspired by the noble and graceful chrysanthemum flower.
The soft curves created by the "Katauchi" molding technique are elegant and at the same time evoke the gentleness of chrysanthemum flowers.
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.
