Description

Kyoto native Ikai Yūichi had 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 charming saké set is done in a simple glaze made from rice straw ash and came from the kiln enrobed in a soothing, organic tone with streams of milky blue.  For the aficionado who appreciates fine saké from the finest pottery.
