ReIRABO Spring Green Oval Plate

by Yumiko iihoshi

A green glazed plate designed by Yumiko iihoshi at her workshop in Japan. This particular series goes under the name of ReIRABO, Irabo being a type of Korean pottery that was admired by Japanese tea-masers as they embodied a “high aesthetic ideal”.

Because the thin glazes highlighted the textured clay beneath, Japanese connoisseurs named this type of tea ware Irabo after the Japanese term ira-ira, meaning “upset” or “annoyed.” Yumiko has put this series in to mass-production after many iterations at her studio, and has now created a selection of tableware that tests the boundaries of a handmade product.
