Koichi Onozawa Kuro Utsuwa 13


Dimensions: H 8.5cm x W 21cm 

Materials: Stoneware 

Method: Hand thrown

Care: Waterproof. When used as tableware, please do not use microwave oven. Gently clean with dishwashing detergent and a soft sponge.



This delicate contoured vessel gently undulates in a deep burnished Urushi lacquer. Its arresting form is hand-built using traditional Japanese techniques local to the artist's environment. The sculptural, asymmetrical vessel responds well to natural light, unearthing rich umber hues from its exquisite, finely crafted, enveloping structure. This piece exhibits a pinched detail, forming a fascist that flows into an accentuated sweeping lip at the vessel edge.
