The handmade Drip Bowl showcases two important parts of the making process: craftsmanship and spontaneity. Each piece is fired with a homemade “kiln glaze” that changes color in the kiln so that not even the maker knows what the piece will look like until it is finished. The result is a feathered effect that drips down from its edges like watercolor seeping through paper. At once colorful and serene, this artful bowl turns your weekly farmers’ market bounty into an instant still life.
Because Sakuzan pieces are made to order, some pieces may exhibit some discrepancies in glazing. The glaze features miniscule cracks: this is intentional and an integral part of the ceramic minou yaki aesthetic tradition.
Nestled in a small workshop in the mountain village of Toki, Sakuzan is a ceramic studio that consistently pushes the envelope of mino ware ceramic tradition. Every detail that defines Sakuzan tableware is designed to complement the food that will be served on it. From adjusting the rim of a cup to facilitate drinking to choosing a glaze that complements the type of food served, each piece is crafted with the user in mind. To hold each piece is to witness its formative dignity; to use it is to understand its functional beauty.
