Chamfer Bowl

In carpentry terms, a chamfer is a symmetrical sloping surface at an edge or corner. Keiichi Tanaka’s ceramic tableware series plays upon that symmetry, featuring octagonal raised edges and sharp geometric lines that artfully frame your favorite curries and rice bowls. Pairs nicely with the Chamfer Dish and Chamfer Cup.   

Please note: because of the handmade nature of Keiichi Tanaka pieces, some pieces may experience slight variations in glaze and colors. Please contact us at info@rikumo.com with any questions.

About Keiichi Tanaka
Keiichi Tanaka’s work spans from a lifelong fascination with the beauty of functional objects. Inspired by the visual poetry of agricultural tools and instruments, Tanaka creates softly textured  glazes and unexpected shapes for otherwise common-use objects. His rustic,contemporary pieces clash with archaic shapes to invoke an atmosphere of "time accumulation": hazy, textured objects that could be remnants of a long-ago past or a not-so-distant future. He has exhibited widely throughout Japan and Europe, and currently lives in Saitama, Japan.
