This Yakishime Flat Plate is great for putting small sweets on next to your tea.
It is also beautiful as a coaster or a base for your vase and objects.
It has two fine feet running long ways, creating space between the plate and the surface you place it on.
Ms. Hashizume grew up surrounded by tea farms in Yame, Fukuoka the main island of Kyushu.
Her organic looking creations really stand out to me with their strong connection to tea which she is so familiar with.
She makes unglazed Yakishime style ceramics which are then specially finished with a wood fire.
Her work reminds me of stone, I love the way the surface changes colour when wet just like a stone.
They absorb water more than other ceramics so on a hot day when cold water is added it stays cool for some time.
Their look will change over time so I hope you use them regularly to enjoy their evolving beauty.
Not suitable for microwave and dishwasher.
Made in Fukuoka, Japan
