Outline

"Shgaraki Irodori" is made with traditional Japanese techniques. Shigaraki ware, designated as a Japanese traditional craft, is one of the six major potteries in Japan, operating from the Middle Ages to today. Having a characteristic thin edge, this product was redesigned as a modern wash basin, while leaving the unique "wabi-sabi" (Japanese aesthetics centered on acceptance of transience and imperfection ) features of Shigaraki ware. The product name Irodori means "colorfulness" in Japanese. With its variation of Japanese traditional colors, the product transmits a unique Japanese taste.
