Shigaraki-Yaki - One of the Six Ancient Kilns in Japan

 

Shigaraki is a small village in Shiga, Japan, situated right below Lake Biwa and close to Kyoto. Shigaraki is one of the oldest pottery centres in Japan, and its pottery Shigaraki-yaki (Shigaraki ware) producing history dates back over 1,300 years. Shigaraki-yaki is known as one of the six ancient kilns in Japan. Traditional Shigaraki ware is known for its distinct characteristics of texture and tone which are raw, yet warm and earthy, and it is embodied the traditional wabi sabi aesthetic. In 1976 Shigaraki-yaki was designated as one of Japan’s Traditional Handicrafts.

The elegant cup and saucer made from dark clay is decorated with a combination of different colored glazes ("kakewake" technique), which creates an attractive decorative effect. The surface has a beautiful bluish glaze that is as smooth as crystal and makes an interesting match with the Shigaraki clay texture. This is a piece of traditional Shigaraki ware produced by the Hechimon from Shiga prefecture.

 

The cup has a capacity of 200 ml and has no handle, so it can be used for multiple purposes. The saucer is impressive in itself and fits perfectly with the cup. 

 

*The photos show various examples. 

The pieces are intricately handmade in Shigaraki on the potter's wheel. In places, delicate color gradients, any shading, small glaze tears, irregularities or speckles, might be possible. The pieces are all slightly different from each other because the result depends on the firing and some shades occur randomly.

Die elegante Tasse und Unterteller aus dunklem Ton ist mit einer Kombination verschiedenfarbiger Glasuren verziert ("Kakewake" -Technik), die einen attraktiven dekorativen Effekt erzeugt. Die Oberfläche hat eine schöne bläuliche Glasur, die so glatt wie Kristall ist und eine interessante Übereinstimmung mit dem Shigaraki-Tontexture aufweist. Dies ist traditionelle Shigaraki-Ware, hergestellt von der Marke Hechimon aus der Präfektur Shiga.

 

Die Tasse hat ein Fassungsvermögen von 200 ml und keinen Griff, sodass sie für mehrere Zwecke verwendet werden kann. Die Unterteller ist an sich schon beeindruckend und passt perfekt zur Tasse. 

 

*Die Fotos zeigen diverse Beispiele. 

Die Stücke werden in aufwendiger Handarbeit in Shigaraki an der Drehscheibe getöpfert. Stellenweise sind zarte Farbverläufe, Schattierungen zuweilen auch kleine Glasurtränen, Unregelmäßigkeiten oder Sprenkel, möglich. Die Stücke unterscheiden sich alle leicht voneinander weil das Ergebnis vom Brand abhängt und einige Schattierungen zufällig entstehen.
