Featuring a traditional 'Shibori' pattern in a Japanese indigo blue on a warm white background. Shibori is an ancient method of dying cloth. It represents the spotted back of a fawn. Creating this fabric pattern is very labour intensive and gives special value to these items. It is now a popular pattern in Japanese culture for its simplicity, beauty and connection with luxury. 

The Ko Family kiln specialises in crafting small items that require patience and care.  Tiny dishes, tea and sake cups plus their popular single flower vases can always be seen lined up on drying shelves in various stages of production. Ko-san's parents hand-finish all items - smoothing bases, painting edges or perfecting motifs with experienced, steady hands.

Slight irregularities in size, glaze and texture reflect the artisan nature of the product and are embraced.

General information & care instructions

Our tableware is food safe and can, with some care, be used in the oven, microwave and dishwasher. Sudden changes in temperature (eg. from freezer to oven) are likely to cause thermal shock, which will damage your item. Always place very hot items onto either wood or cloth.
