Kiritate Bowl Black Yakijime
The base of the shape is a matcha bowl, but it has a sharp shape that does not make you feel "Japanese". Of course, it can be used as a matcha bowl, but it is also recommended for those who don't drink matcha at all, so it is also useful for everyday dining.
You can freely use it as a small matcha bowl, a slightly larger teacup, or as a container like a bowl. The grilled texture and steep form create an atmosphere like no other.
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. This potter's clay contains a lot of iron, and has long been used for teapots. Using this clay, the iron is baked in a method that makes the iron black without applying glaze. There are two colors, "black" and "white".
The color is not the glaze, but the color of the clay and firing. 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.
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.
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.
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.
