The wood-fired warabai glaze highlights the hakeme brushstrokes and the swirl of warabai in the bottom contrasts beautifully with the speckles of fly ash. The rough and natural look to the glaze is balanced by the refined and precise making. Katakuchi sake pourer is available separately.
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.
