This hand-made, flat-bottom bowl is a stunning work of Kasama ware from Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan. Kasama ware is a style of pottery that dates back to the mid-1700s, and is characterized by its use of strong and durable Kasama clay. This bowl features a design of Japanese kousa dogwood flowers and leaves, for an appearance that is at once rustic and refined. Up close, beautiful details such as the use of gold leaf on the flowers and leaves, and the rough texture created by the artist pressing cloth on the clay, become apparent. This is a piece that allows you to discover a new layer of beauty every time you touch or look at it.
