Tokkuris are slim necked bottles with curved foundations, typically used for sake but versatile in their upright posture and water-tight seal.

Fired over several days in a wood fuelled Anagama kiln, the vessel is kept on its side to encourage the flow of glaze, supported by clam shells which are ground away in the final moments of completion.

Comfortable to use with one hand or suitable for floral displays, this Tokuri will easily find a place in any home.

Tetsuya Kowari produces extraordinary vessels that seem almost too sculptural to use but are in fact are all highly functional. These are pieces designed for daily use, or simply for daily contemplation of their incredible aesthetic.

Kowari creates his pieces in a wood fired anagama kiln in Fujinomiya, Shizuoka Prefecture, and the DEA Store is the official stockist of Tetsuya Kowari work in Australia.
