The Purple Crystal Kyo-Ware plate uses a striking and unique crystal glaze that creates an elegant pattern of soft purple florets blooming of the surface of the frosted translucent base. With its soft elegance and handmade imperfection this Kyo-Ware plate is a unique and beautiful take on an incense plate.
Kyo-Ware represents ceramics fired in the Higashiyama area in the eastern hills of Kyoto famous for Shogun Ashikaga Yoshimasa's Higashiyama culture where Japan's three main geido (arts of refinement), Chado, Kado, and Kodo, originated. As the area does not posses raw clay resources, Kyo-ware is known for blending the famous clays of other areas of Japan into rich and unique works of ceramic art, with each artist and kiln producing their own strong personality. With a rich history of over 1,200 years, Kyo-ware is well represented in tea ware, Ikebana, and incense paraphernalia, and prized for its unique beauty and innovative approach.
Please note: due to the uniqueness of all handcrafted and hand-glazed ceramics, variations in glaze colors and effects are common. Due to this, the piece you receive may not exactly match the sample image.
