Murakoshi Shigaraki Rectangle Serving Plate
Rectangle Serving Plate by Takuma Murakoshi.
12" x 7" x 3.5"
Created using only mountain soil from Shigaraki mixed with natural ash, then fired for many hours in high heat. The products just out of the kiln are only half complete. After being used by the artist for some years on a daily basis, they gain maturity and patina. Using the pieces daily make them almost a part of the owner's body, and complete.
