The delicate ridges in the glaze and the slipware decoration at the bottom make this a pleasure to use or just to look at. Useful, versatile, beautiful, this epitomise Kajiwara san's approach. Originally intended as a sake jug, this can be used for any number of things, we have even used it as a little vase a couple of times!
Kajiwara san grew up surrounded by pottery in Tōhō village and has taken up the challenge of how to re-invigorate traditional shapes and decoration. He experimented with different glazes and shapes until he settled on his signature white rice husk ash and brown ameyu glazes which he uses for practical tableware including the versatile Ōhitsu container. His glazes have a real depth of colour and texture which combined with simple shapes and decoration make his work really appealing.
