Haiyūsai 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 cool white plates are done in a natural ash glaze of rice straw applied over an iron-rich slip. The glaze is wiped away in lines to give a sense of momentum. Ideal for serving side dishes and deserts of all kinds.
A wooden presentation box will be custom made to order and signed by the artist. Delivery time for this item is 2 weeks.
