Exactly the same shape as the gas-fired version, these ones are wood-fired. This makes the glaze rougher but with all the beautiful variation from a wood-firing. The insides have a beautiful swirl of warabai glaze. A matching katakuchi is available, but of course you are welcome to mix and match! These choko have quite a wide range of colour, and some are more speckled than others, if you would like a picture of what is available, just let us know!
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.
