ABOUT MIKAWACHI WARE

Mikawachi Ware, also known as Hirado Ware, is a pottery made in Sasebo City, Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan. Known for its translucent white porcelain, it was highly popular in Europe during the trend toward Japanese crafts in the West in the 20th century. Mikawachi Ware is remarkable for its delicate modeling techniques that push the limits of porcelain, such as openwork and relief carving, and for its beautiful painting that looks like a single piece of art.

Beautiful blue bowl

Gorgeous lavish yet quaint design. The soft blue color is even more stunning in person and pairs so well with Tobe ware. I particularly like using this bowl in the wintertime as a small fruit bowl.
