HATAMAN TOUEN MOIST SAKURA IMARI NABESHIMA WARE SIDE PLATE
$102.00

Hataman Touen Moist Sakura Imari Nabeshima Ware Side Plate

USD $102

This Sakura (cherry blossoms) side plate is from the moist series by Hataman Touen of Imari Nabeshima Ware. 

The graceful matte celadon texture conveys tenderness the moment you touch it. The moist and gentle surface finish is the unique technology of the kiln. 

The cherry blossoms are delicately engraved with a strong and weak pattern, and the shading of the celadon porcelain is magnificent.

It is perfect as an extra plate for the main dish, side dish or dessert.

The traditional technique of Nabeshima ware is characterized by a pale blue color reminiscent of the morning of the Okawachiyama in a light mist. Hataman Touen has taken on the challenge of creating a new expression of celadon porcelain, and has created matte-textured "moist" series with a sandblasted finish. The moist texture is very smooth to the touch, and the fresh green gradation gives a cool and refreshing feeling.

Nabeshima celadon is a rare green-colored glaze produced from high-quality celadon ore mined in the Okawachiyama using a secret formula never before used outside of the area. This contrast creates a wide range of gradations in the ware and accentuates the sense of depth, which is one of the traditional techniques of Nabeshima ware.

Hataman Touen is a company that aims to "create a new Nabeshima" along with passing on the history and traditional craft of Imari Nabeshima ware, which has continued for 370 years. Based on the belief that "traditional crafts can only be inherited if they are closely connected to daily life, "the company offers tableware that enriches the spirit and sensibility in accordance with modern lifestyles.

Imari Nabeshima Ware

Nabeshima ware is a porcelain ware produced by the Nabeshima domain kiln, which was established in 1628 by 31 selected potters in the Arita and Imari areas (Saga Prefecture) as a project directly managed by the Saga Nabeshima domain in the early Edo period.

For about 250 years until the abolition of the domain in 1871, the Nabeshima ware, which could only be used by shoguns and feudal lords, continued to produce porcelain masterpieces such as "Iro-Nabeshima (colored Nabeshima)", "Sometsuke" and celadon porcelain, and others as masterpieces of the finest quality. Later, the kilns became private kilns, and new potters joined to create the present Imari Nabeshima ware.

gorgeous

The overall effect of this piece is every bit as stunning in person as it is in its website product gallery. It is only because I am such a perfectionist that I find shortcomings in some aspects of the design and in the execution for the piece I received in the form of an incidental glaze imbalance I find uncomplimentary to the design. I am thrilled with the 3D design idea for celadon and delighted by the matte finish that prevents glare from interfering with the appreciation of the broad color range it renders! I eagerly await future celadon projects from Hataman!
