Tsugaru Side Plate - 21cm
Beautiful earthy plate. One edge of the plate is covered with an apple glaze made from the ash of apple tree bark and the rest is left unglazed which is created with "Yakishime" technique. Each plate may come its unique pattern. (Please see pictures)
Tsugaru Kanayama Pottery creates pottery that has a unique deep texture by firing slowly and carefully at a high temperature of 1350 ℃. This is called "Yakishime".
-Characteristics of Tsugaru Kanayama Pottery-
The vessels are buried beneath ash allowing fire and air flow on the surface of the vessels and do not get fired directly. Also sometimes the gray and blue colours appear when fired. The condition occurs because of less oxygen.
Straws are placed between pieces to separate each vessels in a kiln. This technique leaves some marks of red straw after firing.
These techniques bring out the original unique texture of the vessels.
Most of Tsugaru Kanayama Pottery are created without glaze. The way Hidasuki and Sangiri appear on each vessel is different. It may have a more worn-out texture than the pictures show.
