really gentle flowers

A soft green flower drawn on a white background. The dots on the rim are also a nice accent, and the shape of the vessel and the pattern are well balanced.

European antique look

Octagonal means octagon. An octagonal container that is often seen at flea markets in Europe. Placing this Octagona bowl with a gentle texture in a round or square container will balance the dining table and make you feel relaxed.

The warm texture of earthenware

It has a glossy and smooth texture that feels good to the touch. Since it is semi-porcelain, it has a stone-like sound when you trace it with your finger, and the black dots that react with the iron contained in the soil during firing give a sense of depth to the surface.

Just the right size for serving

With a length of 17 cm and a depth of about 3.2 cm, it is the perfect size for serving boiled dishes, side dishes, salads, etc. and placing them on the dining table. The octagonal shape is considered to be auspicious in feng shui, so it will naturally appear more frequently.

Shinobu Suzuki's container mail order

Because each one is handmade, there are individual differences in color, shape, size, weight, and glaze unevenness.
In addition, depending on the degree of glaze, the appearance of the baked color, pinholes, and iron powder (black spots) will vary. Please rest assured that there is no problem in using it. We hope that you will enjoy the unique taste and individuality of handmade products. You can't choose which item you receive, but we hope you'll look forward to it until it arrives. If you are interested, please contact us before shipping and we will email you a separate photo.

Recommended care method from Shinobu Suzuki

〇 Earthenware vessels are absorbent and have the characteristic of being easily soaked with the juices and oils of cooking.
〇In particular, those with penetration and white vessels will stand out.
〇In the case of pottery, before using for the first time, boil it in rice water, cool it in hot water, rinse it well with water, and dry it once.
〇In the case of semi-porcelain, it is not necessary to seal it, but since it is somewhat absorbent, please soak it in water and dry it well before using it for the first time.
〇 If you lightly soak it in water before using it normally, it will be less likely to get dirty.
〇 Wash as soon as possible after use, and dry it well before storing as it may cause mold.
〇 Please wash gently so as not to rub the painted part strongly.
〇 We hope that you will enjoy the change in the taste of the container that increases as you use it for a long time.

Understanding of "Utsuwa"
〇Because each product is handmade, there may be individual differences in color, shape, pattern, size, thickness, weight, etc. Also, even with the same glaze and clay, uneven colors and shading will appear.
〇Because the painting is also hand-painted one by one, the expression may differ.
〇 Depending on the product, there may be small holes, small black dots, line scratches, protrusions, pinholes, rattling, or distortion due to the manufacturing process.
〇 We have processed the image of the product so that the color is as close to the real thing as possible, but the color and texture may look different depending on the display screen of your computer or smartphone.
〇In our shop, we not only inspect the manufacturer, pottery, and artist, but also deliver products that have passed the final inspection at our store.
〇 Product photos are sample shots, so the items you receive will not be the same in detail.
〇 We do not accept returns or exchanges due to customer's convenience. Please purchase after understanding and acknowledging this.
〇 We would be happy if you could enjoy the “taste” and “interest” of handmade products that are not found in factory mass-produced products!
