From One Kiln studio in Kagoshima comes this beautiful bowl. Into the clay Kido-san mixes volcanic ash from the local active volcano called Sakurajima. This gives the piece a wonderful dark color with iridescent highlights. The inside is finished with a white glaze and the line between the glaze and the ash used on the outside yields a bluish-green halo. This bowl is large enough for a hearty donburi or lunchtime salad.
At his studio One Kiln Ceramics, Kido-san creates handmade pottery that evokes the beauty of his native Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan.
