This easy-to-use salad plate was made by ceramic artist Kayoko Tambo for NORTA. The slightly raised base gives the plate a feeling of full presence in spite of its small diameter.
The "Hanashinogi" series uses the traditional "shinogi" technique, in which the surroundings are carved out using a self-made wheeled planer, and a glaze is used in the center to express the axis of a flower, inspired by flowers in gardens and plants found in the city.
For the glaze, a crystal glaze using minerals such as titanium and zinc oxide is used. As the glaze cools in the kiln, the minerals mixed into the glaze crystallize, creating a unique expression that appears as a small flower-like pattern.
Other products include cereal bowls in different sizes, salad bowls, and dinner plates. Each piece can be layered to create a beautiful table setting.
Since each piece is handmade, there are differences in the finish of each piece, and no two pieces are exactly alike. Please enjoy your own one-of-a-kind item.
On the back, there is Ms. Tambo's engraving and the N of NORTA, which proves that it is a NORTA original.
