Handmade by Toshiyuki Sakai in Kasama, Japan

 

Handthrown plate in stoneware. Flower-shaped design. Crackled green glaze laid on the surface creates a stunning effect.

 

Crazing has been considered as a beautiful decorative effect since the Song dynasty. As a pot cools down after a firing, if the glaze contracts more than the clay body, it cracks or crazes. Sakai-san’s glaze is thick and the crackled pattern is quite appealing.

 

Dimensions: w-23cm x h-2cm

 

As all products are handmade sizes and colour may vary slightly

 

Toshiyuki Sakai uses a special combination of glazing and traditional wood firing to create his pieces, the exact method of which is a fiercely guarded family secret.
