Delicate and refined, Ishida's blue spiral works are the epitome of his signature spiral technique and extensive firing expertise. Each porcelain cup has been thrown and hand-carved with expert precision, lightly glazed with cobalt and brought to life in a traditional Anagama kiln. Almost too beautiful to use, they contain tiny worlds that glisten in the light and are best experienced when held in the hands.
