Madaragaratsu Hirazara (斑唐津平皿)
This is the Karatsu ware crafted by FUJINOKI, Yotatro (藤ノ木陽太郎).
He engraved the wings of Phoenix, the sign of the motif and the river flowing.
We reccomend that the plate goes well with anything to complement the cuisine.
The white straw ash glaze is used to make milky white color in this kind of ceramic.
We call it "madara" because blue and black spots are appeared due to melting the iron and the pine ashes when it's baked.
