Hagi Guinomi Kohiki (萩ぐい呑粉引)
This is the Hagi ware crafted by OKADA, Yasushi (岡田泰).
White colored clay slip was applied to the body after throwing the potter's wheel.
We call the pattern cherry blossoms "sakura" or fireflies by regarding them as the season, because mottled pink dots are seen.
The quality called "tsuchiaji" is soft, deep sense of touch like texture.
Height : 4.5 cm
Diameter : 8.0 cm
OKADA was majoring in sculpture at Tokyo Zokei University. The soft and peaceful color occured from glaze attracts us thoroughly.
