Made as a sushi plate and totally food safe, these interesting block plates can be used for any number of things. As a presentation pedestal, as a vase stand, as a serving block, or maybe even a cheese plate!
Sometimes smooth and often cracked and pock-marked, these sushi plates are full of wabi-sabi style.
Naganuma san is a force of nature. He has the energy to have a
wood-fired noborigama and anagama - and he fires them regularly by
himself. This is a huge amount of work for one person by itself. He also finds and digs his own clay, makes his own glazes and grows his own rice. No wonder he describes himself as "made of fire and earth". Despite all his skill and technical ability, he still refuses to consider himself an artist - just a potter.
