Ceramic art experience (plans with lunch are also available)“USUKIYAKI USUKI-SARAYAMA” Usuki Pottery “Katauti” Pottery Experience
This is an experience to make an original size "Wabana-Jtwelve petals-shallow bowl" by doing the same authentic work as craftsmen, from molding to attaching the base.
Katauti" is a ceramic technique in which raw, dried clay is deformed by covering it with a mold to create non-circular vessels such as rim flower dishes and octagonal bowls.
Size is 18.5 cm in diameter
"Wabana-Jtwelve petals-shallow bowl"
This shallow bowl is designed to look like a row of twelve petals.
The gently curved bowl is halfway deep between a plate and a bowl, and is just the right size to hold side dishes, main dishes, desserts, bread, fruit, etc. for one person.
The line extending from the center of the vessel to the rim allows the food to float on the surface of the vessel, draining off just enough liquid to allow the food to be served. Fluctuating like the beauty of natural formations, the rounded petal rim casts shadows on the table and creates a beautiful expression. This dishware complements food with its calm and gorgeous appearance.
