White Anemone Small Bowl | ON THE TABLE | Yoshizawagama

190 kr

This small bowl takes inspiration from the anemone flower. Warm white interior finish is delicately applied to a red clay base. Unfinished areas exhibit a grayish hue. Notable iron spots and instances of glaze flow are visible. It serves wonderfully as a soy sauce dish, pickling dish, or sweets dish. Placing it on a large plate enhances one-plate meals with a charming accent. It brings a subtle floral touch to your dining table.

Coloring and patterns vary across each piece. Some may feature a red clay hue along the edges. Please note that uniformity cannot be guaranteed, as products are shipped in their natural state.

Every piece from our kiln boasts a gentle irregularity. Even with the "tatara method," irregularities persist. This handcrafted essence defines our pottery. Variations may occur.

The "tatara method" involves slicing well-kneaded clay, placing it on a gypsum mold, and shaping it. This allows for the creation of various shapes like ovals, squares, and flowers, unlike wheel throwing.

Edges are finished to ensure ease of use during dining or cleaning. Some items feature subtle irregularities and a tactile roughness.

Care instructions

Before you start using pottery, it's important to know a few things to keep it in good condition.

Pottery absorbs water. This means if you start using it right away, liquids like oil, soy sauce, or tea can soak into it. Even washing won't completely get rid of these stains, especially in colored pottery where the dirt isn't as visible but can still cause smells and mold.

To prevent this, soak your pottery in clean water for about 30 minutes to an hour before using it for the first time. Then make sure to dry it thoroughly for 2 to 3 days before using it again. Even if you're using a bowl that hasn't been used in a while, it's a good idea to give it a quick rinse before serving food in it.

While in the past, boiling pottery in rice soup was suggested to prevent stains, it's time-consuming. Soaking pottery in water for 30 minutes to an hour is a simpler alternative that works well.

Remember, pottery absorbs water, so stains may gradually build up with use. However, this is considered part of its charm, as pottery changes over time with use.

When it comes to using dishwashers, ovens, and microwaves, be cautious. These machines can stress pottery, possibly leading to dirt buildup, chipping, or cracking. Scratched or cracked pottery may even break in dishwashers, so it's best to avoid using damaged pottery altogether.

Pottery is sensitive to sudden temperature changes, so avoid placing hot pottery in cold water or exposing it to extreme temperatures.

While dishwashers won't break pottery with their high temperatures and pressures, be careful not to bump or drop your pottery inside. Metal dishwasher baskets can also cause damage if bumped. It's best to hand wash pottery to avoid this risk.

Using a microwave or steamer is generally safe for pottery, but avoid sudden cooling of hot pottery to prevent damage. Also, refrain from using scratched or cracked pottery in microwaves or steamers to prevent breakage.

Avoid using bleach on pottery, as it can be absorbed and cause harm.

Lastly, pottery from this kiln isn't fireproof, so it can't be used directly on an open flame.
