Black Rustic Bowl

by Shinko Nakanishi


A superb black bowl that's been handmade by Japanese potter Shinko Nakanishi. All of his works are made from local clay that's dug and processed near his studio, leading to an unusual rustic aesthetic.

This particular bowl is flatter and is more like a dish, but could be used to serve a mixture of larger food at the dinner table. On the surface features marks from the firing, the three marked areas in the middle are used to stilt the plate in the kiln. A beautiful piece of functional pottery.
