Ikutouen Handmade Black Kannai Basanai Hachi Bowl - 14 x 5.5cm
Tsuboya Pottery Studio Ikutouen has been creating Tsuboya pottery at Tsuboya, the birthplace of Yachimun, for many generations. The current sixth-generation master potter and certified traditional art craftsman, Tadashi Takaesu, is a master of creating exquisite items for daily use with his line-carving techniques, as well as Shisa figures, using the mold forged by our fifth-generation master potter Ikuo Takaesu. With the traditional craft and care for materials passed down to us through generations, we will continue to be an ever-present part of our community here in Okinawa.
How to Take Care of your Piece
The potter has done a sealing process to avoid stains to go into the artwork. So you will not have to do anything special before using this product.
However after years, the effect of the sealing will fade and over the years, this product will develop a natural change in its color. We hope you enjoy the "ageing" of the product as well.
Please AVOID using this product in the microwave oven.
Please AVOID using this product in a dishwasher.
If you use this to place things with strong colors for a long time, such as coffee, it will stain. You might be able to remove the stains with a melamine sponge (Available in Japanese supermarkets or Japan Home Centre)
Each one is carved with a chisel.
The back of the product is engraved with Kamany's initials K.
* Because it is hand-carved, there are individual differences.
