This beautiful flower shaped "Kobachi" small bowl is from the RINKA series of Usukiyaki. The petal design, characteristic of Usuki ware, enhances the food as if it were a picture frame.
It is just the right size to hold appetizers and side dishes for one person. It is also convenient for holding desserts, yogurt, fruit, etc.
The flower-shaped plate follows the original design of Usuki ware. The design is inspired by ancient 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 image of gentle wild flowers that soothe and heal the soul.
When laid out on a table, it creates a scene of brilliance and warmth, just like a field full of blooming 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.
