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 plates are done in an ash glaze (haiyū) made from oak and accented with iron-rich slip (tessai) details.  They have a soft, organic tone which enhances the color of foods and are well suited for dishes of all kinds.
