Umami Mart Registry

Simple and stately, the kanji script on this plate translates to "Yukushiji Temple" which is located in Nishinokyo.Β This dish can be used for wagashi (sweets) or soy sauce, and can also be used as an accessory plate for small jewelry.

There was a time when Akahada pottery was made exclusively for the local shrines and priests, andΒ we are so lucky to carry these special ceramics.

Please note: each piece by Furuse Gyozo is unique – enjoy these handmade pieces and their subtle differences and glazes ranging from white, pink, and powder blue.Β 

Furuse Gyozo is in its 8th generation ownership under Noriko Furuse, who lives on site of the three kilns where the Akahada pottery is designed, fired, and finished. The signature Akahada red clay is sourced from her back yard, a material that has been used for pottery since the 1500s. The result are pieces that express unique huesΒ in whites, pink, and powder blue. Read about Yoko's visit to Furuse Gyozo on our blog!
