Kiritate hot water chilled white Yakijime
Yuzashi tea utensils made from the same clay as the teapot and with the same yakishime method. Of course, it can be used as a hot water cooler, but it can be used for many purposes because it is made of simple shapes and materials. It looks like a small bowl or bowl, and is also recommended as a vessel.
While having the hardness of porcelain, it has the texture of fine soil. Since it does not absorb water, it does not transfer odors.
The appearance and texture of yakijime is unique, and it goes well with soups, dishes, and vegetables and fruits. Japanese side dishes, salads, and potage-based soups are also recommended. Bamboo spoons and forks go great together, and I often use them together.
It is called stoneware, and is intermediate in quality between pottery and porcelain. It is denser and stronger than pottery, and has almost no water absorption. When struck, it makes a metallic sound similar to porcelain, but the firing temperature is lower than that of porcelain and it is not translucent. The surface is smooth, but there are fine unevenness on the surface, just between pottery and porcelain. The white here uses clay that reproduces the white mud (white with a tinge of greige), which was often used in Banko ware from the Taisho period to the Showa period. There are two colors, "black" and "white".
The color of clay and firing, not the color of the glaze. By using it, the luster and depth of color will increase. This is also one of the pleasures of using it. Although it is a clay material itself, it has a sharp shape and a fine clay surface, so it is well-balanced and blends well with a variety of ingredients, both Japanese and Western.
Production is Originally started as a pottery shop, Nankei Pottery is now a pottery that mainly makes teapots. Banko-yaki from Yokkaichi City, Mie Prefecture, is popular for making teapots that are lightly and hard baked using unique highly viscous clay.
"White" baked products may have an orange part. It is a reaction of the minerals contained in the potter's clay during firing. Please be aware of the characteristics and texture of this manufacturing method and pottery clay.
Due to the use of pottery clay containing iron powder, there are some black spots on the surface, but please enjoy the texture of the material.
