Deceptively simple, these leaf plates by Kowari Tetsuya contain tiny worlds of epic landscapes; pooling lakes, vast beaches and shifting earth.
Fired over multiple days in a traditional Anagama kiln, Oribe glaze and iron oxide washes are applied in a manner similar to sumi-e or Japanese ink paintings, embodying the tranquil and complex beauty of the natural world.
Nb. these are hand made pieces and measurements are approximate.
Made in Japan.
