Description

Kyoto native Ikai Yūichi has trained under the late Shimizu Uichi (1926-2004) who, in 1985, was awarded the title of Living National Treasure for his outstanding work in ceramic making.  And it is from his sensei that Ikai learned the secrets to coaxing subtle hues and fluid effects from the oldest and most rudimentary of all glazes - hai, or ash.

These ash glazed dishes are detailed with iron markings (tetsu-sai) applied by the artist with a straw bush in quick, energetic strokes.  For serving larger side dishes of all kinds.
