Muko-zuke dishes with four corners and cobalt glaze, Old Imari ware (Set of two dishes)
Price shown is for a set of two.
The technique of making "irisumi" (a corner) originated in Momoyama period (1573-1600) tea ceremony ceramics, in which a wheel-thrown base is covered to form a shape.
The corner of this work has a soft curve like a flower petal, giving it a lovely impression.The lapis lazuli glaze is applied all the way to the inside of the bottom, giving it a plump appearance with a sense of depth. The basis material white body accents the entire piece.
It is an easy-to-use everyday dish that gives you the pleasure of thinking about what dishes you would like to pair with it today.
