Shihō-zara Slab Plate Set by Nagai Ken
A 3-piece set of slab plates by Nagai Ken. It was fired at Tenkū-gama - the artist's wood-burning noborigama climbing kiln. While in the kiln, warm gradations of rust red to chocolate brown formed on the unglazed clay as it was forever heat changed, superheated feldspar crystals peppered the body as they burst through their earthen bed, and swirling embers of pine, in wave after wave, fused with the surface to produce a natural glaze which is rough yet pleasing to the touch.
Full of warmth and rustic charm, these rectangular plates (shihō-zara) are ideal for serving guests delicately arranged appetizers and desserts.
A wooden presentation box will be custom made to order and signed by the artist. Delivery time for this item is 2 weeks.
