Iwami - Ceramic Green - Flat Pot with Lid

SKU: TSSG00101 W100 D100 H60


Located in Gotsu City, Shimane Prefecture and starting in the 18th century, Iwami flourished as the production area for large water pots called Handou. Particularly suited for the creation of large objects, the Iwami clay is resistant to acid and very hard. This makes it possible for it to be fired at high temperatures. It was widely used to craft storage jars due to its sturdiness and resistance to water, salt and acidity. However, the demand for Iwami ware decreased sharply with the advent of plastic containers. Nowadays, few Iwami potteries remain. Using traditional techniques, Iwami artisans have been crafting large water pots and other similar objects. These lidded bowls possess the beauty of tableware and the functionality of containers. They are suitable for storing cooked vegetables or condiments, and their resistance to acidity and sturdiness makes them the perfect container for pickled vegetables as well. Because they are fired in a climbing kiln, they have a unique, rich and gentle character.
