Special Collection Enyu Lapis Round Pitcher Large
Wood-fired in Mashiko with a special salt-glazing technique that produces this beautiful lapis lazuli color, reminiscent of the ocean view in Hakodate.
Welcome to the magical world of Usaka Koji! Ceramic pieces are imbued with folklore and the imagination of this acclaimed potter, who has been creating functional artworks since 1980, when he established his first kiln in Tochigi, Japan. He is most famous for his hand-painted Aka-e (red drawn) or Seimon (color drawn) high-temperature fired glazed ceramics. His works are instantaneously recognizable and contain a whole universe of their own. The designs often include a detailed arabesque pattern with the moon, clouds, mountains, and even forest creatures. Usaka Koji produces a very limited number of pieces each year, and we hope you will make one of these select pieces a part of your home.
Made in Hakodate, Japan
