Kousai Kiln Camelia Hasami Divided Sauce Plate
This sauce plate has a camellia motif painted on a "yakishime" base, which is unglazed pottery fired at a high temperature. It is an eye-catching piece on the table with a rustic and warm atmosphere that brings out the best of hand-drawn lines and handmade shapes.
There are two places to put sauces and condiments, which is convenient when eating sashimi. It is also deep enough to place pickles, snacks, and small side dishes.
Kousai Kiln is owned by Hirohiko Umeno, a potter engaged in stoneware making in Hasami-cho, Nagasaki Prefecture. He trained at a Kiyomizu Ware kiln in Kyoto City and opened his own kiln in Mt. Nakao in 1991. He produces unique stoneware based on handmade and hand-painted techniques.
His works are stoneware using the "Yakishime" technique, firing unglazed pottery fired at a high temperature, in combination with Kiyomizu Ware's painting. The unique motifs of the paintings, such as depictions of plants like flowers and grapes, and animals like cats and rabbits, make it fun to choose from a wide variety of pieces.
