Blue Pigment Vase
An impressive bright blue vase handmade by Japanese potter Keiichi Tanaka at his studio in Kawagoe, a city located just outside Tokyo. This tall vase is perfect for a small plant or piece of foliage, it also has a small loop handle which makes it easy to pick up and could alternatively be used as a pitcher.
He achieves this stunning blue surface colour by applying a glaze and firing at 1200°C, then applying other pigments and firing again at a much lower temperature. This is certainly a quirky piece that is sure to turn a few heads.
