Clever Japanese ceramic tupperware designed as containers for leftovers, these Ohitsu are stylish, practical and beautifully made. The original idea was that you can put the Ohitsu full of leftovers straight from the fridge into the microwave or oven and the lid can then be used as a serving plate. But they work really well for all sorts of things: once you start using them you will find a use for them everywhere!

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.
