Free from glaze chemicals, these rustic vessels boast a unique glaze that forms naturally during the wood-firing process. Enjoy a natural beauty that complements both rustic and modern interiors.
Colored by Nature
A unique natural glaze is brought to life as red-pine ash falls and melts onto vessels like snow.
Founder of Tsugaru Ujoyaki, this passionate potter has made it his life's work to create timeless vessels that can compete with those from the Heian and Kamakura periods that inspire him. Determined to create his works by hand without relying on molds, Rikei Imai also hand crafts his pottery tools and kilns, resulting in truly one-of-a-kind pieces of art.
