These delightful little salt jars are lovely to look at, to hold and to use. The shape, decoration and attention to detail give these little jars an intimate character. Unglazed on the inside to let the moisture evaporate and prevent the salt from clumping, these salt jars are also used for sugar, but are equally well-suited to holding your earrings and rings, it is easy to come up with a reason to convince yourself!
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.
