The Sky Blue range is designed and made at the Takai Kiln in Gifu prefecture, Japan.
Made of 'Minoyaki' porcelain, fired at a high temperature and hand finished at the Takai kiln in Gifu prefecture, Japan.
The Sky-Blue range consists of organic shapes inspired by the mountainous alpine region of Gifu prefecture. The glaze is fired at low temperatures to create a unique 'crackle' effect over a deep and vibrant blue background.
The Takai kiln is hard to find, located in an old pottery town behind a maze of small side streets. Taking inspiration from nature and 'wabi sabi' culture, they are renowned for their glass glazes and vivid colours.
Slight irregularities in size, glaze and texture reflect the artisan nature of the product and are embraced.
