Outline

The "Ogatsu Suzuri Ink stone" is not only being used for Japanese Calligraphy, but is now also widely used for tableware. That said, for it being expensive and hard to process, it has been only used as a simple flat plate. However, by making glaze with powder that is produced throughout the manipulation of the ink stone, it became possible to apply the special features of the ink stone to tableware that come in many shapes an sizes. The texture and the unique black color is what the glaze of the "Ogatsu Suzuri Ink stone" can only make.
