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.
