As all products are handmade sizes and colour may vary slightly
Yamashita specialises in using a beautiful iron glaze that comes out as a range of pearly silvers to deep, dark blues. The colour and sheen of the glaze is affected by the positions inside the kiln and can be quite unpredictable. As a result, each one of his pieces is unique and irreplaceable. His works are particularly beautiful when enjoyed with a clear sake so that you can see the glaze shimmering.
