Oribe Bowl, Medium

$ 135.00


The people of the Momoyama period found beauty in the changes in shade caused by the flow of the glaze, and enjoyed what they called "scenery" in their image of the depth of the mountains and the depths of the sea. Bowls of different sizes can be stacked like a multi-tiered box or nested for storage. The pottery maker that creates this bowl with a machine wheel using a method known as “mizugote”. Though the maker has produced various dishes in many different shapes coated with a variety of glazes, they now mainly produce dishes coated with oribe glaze. Japanese people see nature and beautiful scenery in the changing shades of colors produced by the flow of glaze and appreciate them as “landscapes”. What makes Japanese pottery attractive is the warm, soft texture of the clay and the tasteful colors of the glazes.
