SANZOKU is a brand of ceramics by artist Yuko Nemoto, inspired by the image of "tableware for spending time (in the mountains)". SANZOKU is a brand of cute and quirky ceramics that can be used in the real world and can also be art pieces.
SANZOKU is created like a sculpture, one by one, by "Tebineri (hand forming pottery)" (a method of molding by piling up strings of clay one layer at a time).
Cautions for handling
Each piece is a one-of-a-kind handmade product. Unlike the molding method using a potter's wheel or a mold, the clay is compressed using only the force of the hand's fingers to form the piece, so you can enjoy the gentle expression of the piece, but unlike other molding methods, it may chip easily and be fragile. However, unlike other molding methods, it may chip easily and be fragile in some parts.
Also, depending on the glaze used, there may be many "kan-nyu" (fine cracks in the glaze), which will give the piece a more sophisticated look after use.
The gold and silver (kinsai and ginsai) are baked on, but they are semi-permanent, so they will fade or change in color with use. Also, it may come off when rubbed with a hard sponge or the like. Please understand it as the atmosphere and taste of the passage of time. The gold content of the gold color is 6%.
