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.

This ash glazed plate is done in a glaze made from oak and rice straw ash.  Energetically sculpted with deeply incised waves, it holds nuances of ash in a multitude of organic colors.  A resplendent example of Ikai Yūichi's mastery over haiyū.

Slab plates are commonly used to serve grand assortments of sushi, tempura or other culinary arrangements.  As an interior piece, it commands equal attention all on its own.
