Haiyū Tetsusai Dish Set by Ikai Yūichi
Kyoto native Ikai Yūichi has trained under the late Shimizu Uichi (1926-2004) who, in 1985, was awarded the title of Living National Treasure for his outstanding work in ceramic making. And it is from his sensei that Ikai learned the secrets to coaxing subtle hues and fluid effects from the oldest and most rudimentary of all glazes - hai, or ash.
These attractive dishes are imbued with the organic quality for which Ikai Yūichi's works are widely renowned. They are done in an ash glaze (haiyu) of oak and decorated with iron-rich brushwork. Their soft tone naturally brings out the color of foods, making the set ideal for serving steamed vegetables and salads.
A wooden presentation box will be custom made to order and signed by the artist. Delivery time for this item is 2 weeks.
