Traditional Tamba Ware
Crafted from Tamba ware, one of Japan's Six Ancient Kilns, this jar is produced by Danso Kiln in Tamba Sasayama, Hyogo Prefecture. The kiln is led by Shigeko Ichino, the eighth-generation potter who has trained at the Bernard Leach Pottery in the UK. The jar combines traditional Tamba tube drawing techniques with slipware methods learned at the Leach Pottery, resulting in a piece with a rich, textured appearance.

Slipware Technique
The jar features classic slipware patterns from Danso Kiln’s slipware series. The freehand-drawn flowing curves and the warmth of the handcrafting process make this jar particularly appealing. It adds a vibrant touch to your dining table.

Versatile and Spacious
With a generous capacity of about 300ml, this jar is ideal for storing not only pickled plums and other pickles but also condiments like soy sauce or vinegar. It’s also great for tea bags, snacks, or even kitchen spices and seasonings.

This Tamba tabletop jar blends the traditional craftsmanship of Tamba ware with modern convenience. It’s a perfect addition to your daily dining experience.
