Shigaraki ware, one of the six ancient kilns of Japan, is located in Shiga Prefecture. The artwork of Yutaka Kou is based on the ancient Shigaraki pottery that has been at the core of Japanese aesthetics since the 12th century.
The beautiful deep earthy color is subtly adorned with black speckles.
The jar, without any specific function, showcases pure artistic sensibility.
Feel free to use it according to the function you desire.
