Pink Kiji Round Bowl S

by Makoto Saito

£60.00

A bowl handcrafted from semi-porcelain clay by Japanese ceramic artist Makoto Saito at his studio in Seto City, Aichi Prefecture. The glaze on the surface of this vessel is matte and has been applied with a sponge to create all these unique  textures, specifically in this case light and dark pink.

This would be great for serving food at the dinner table or showcasing as an art piece on the sideboard. Certainly a piece that will look contemporary for a long time to come.

Note: These are made by hand so each one may differ slightly from the photo, they all have their own character.

Approx Measurements: 12cm Diameter, 6.5cm Height

Seto City, located in Aichi Prefecture in central Japan, is one of the main areas in Japan specifically known for the production of ceramic goods. Although the area has a long ceramic tradition there are a number of young, talented artists in this area experimenting with clay to produce functional forms that fuse the different techniques found here with modern ideas.

One of those makers is Makoto Saito, a potter inspired by Lucie Rie and Hans Coper. Makoto produces thin, light forms on his pottery wheel from a semi-porcelain clay body. Once fired pigmented porcelain slips are layered using a sponge to create beautiful, contemporary surfaces that stand out just enough to intrigue the eye and make them a joy to use each day.
