Carved out of a single piece of clay (known as Kurinuki a Japanese method) this is a very time consuming technique but highly rewarding, the final result is beautifully rustic and has a primitive feel to it.
This piece was created from a warm brown clay body and glazed in a white glaze, resulting in a chalky mottled white effect and some apricot (not visible in image) flushing on the insides, its very pretty on closer inspection. Underside has been left bare.
This piece would be perfect to keep precious little collected treasures or to serve a variety of salts/pepper/condiments/oils to serve directly from the table.
