Shigaraki Flower Vase S3 / Katsunori Sawa

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Known for its earthy tones, rough and primitive texture, Shigaraki ware is originated from one of Japan’s six ancient kilns. One notable feature of Shigaraki ware is that it is created by the unpredictable “yohen” effects that manifest on pottery in the kiln during firing. Ceramic artist Katsunori Sawa developed his unique expression that celebrates Shigaraki style through clay and fire. Each creation has a beautiful landscape that appears as the result of firing and rapid cooling. The simple warmth and rich expressiveness of this flower vase is truly captivating, making it a perfect centerpiece for both modern and traditional settings, adding a touch of rustic elegance to any space.
