  • About Seasoning earthenware

    Ceramic is not as strong as porcelain or semi-porcelain, and its high water absorbency makes it susceptible to staining and, in rare cases, water leakage.
    We recommend that material number 1 be sealed before use.
    Material No. 9 should be treated by cooking porridge before use.
    *Sealing reduces the absorption of cooking ingredients and stains. However, it does not prevent them from being absorbed completely.

  • Microwave Safe
  • About Microwave Safe

    A microwave oven heats or cooks food very quickly using short electromagnetic waves, namely, microwaves. In most cases, the microwaves heat the water content of the food. However, in some cases, the microwaves concentrate on the carbonized (burnt) parts of the food, causing the temperature to rise higher than the other parts. For example, the microwaves concentrated on the carbonized (burnt) parts of stir-fried vegetables can create a large temperature difference in /on the tableware item, which may cause breakage. In addition to water content, oil content is also heated. The oil has a higher boiling point than the water, so it heats up at a higher temperature, creating a very large temperature difference between the parts that contain oil and the parts that do not, which can cause breakage.

    ・Never soak hot tableware in water or place it on the cold kitchen counter. Avoid rapidly heating frozen foods or putting [the cold tableware just taken out of the refrigerator] in the microwave. A rapid change in temperature will lead to “crazing” (chaps) or breakage.

    ※The products with gold or silver paintings, or applied with particular glazes are not microwave safe. We put a “Do Not Microwave” sticker on those items, so please confirm it.

    ※Accessories etc., made of other materials are excluded from microwave safe items.

Features
  • Strong Color Shade Variations
  • Strong Color Shade Variations

    Each piece has strong individual color shade variations. Affected by glazes and natural firing conditions such as changes in temperature, humidity and other climate elements and also how to receive the fire in the kiln chamber, each piece has own expression. It is really difficult to make the completed ware exactly same in color by firing and glazing even when the same materials are used. 100 pieces show 100 kinds of expressions, as it were.

  • Strong Color Irregularities
  • Strong Color Irregularities

    There are strong color irregularities of applying a glaze or slip, which are different from part to part in a piece of ware. For example, some parts are glazed thinly or thickly depending on the shape of the ware. That leads to part-to-part differences in appearance of the clay in a piece of ware.

  • Glaze or Slip Drips
  • Glaze or Slip Drips

    The glaze or slip may look like dripping. There is unevenness of a glaze or slip when they are applied to ware by hand. There also appear glaze drips or slip drips, which are caused by the glaze or slip flows during firing.

  • Pinholes
  • Pinholes

    Pinholes may be seen clearly on the surface. Pottery (earthenware) is mainly made from earth, and green ware contains a lot of air while biscuit firing. While glazed firing, this air inside the biscuit ware becomes air bubbles, which remain and look like small holes on the surface of the glazed part. Those small holes are called pinholes.

  • Crazing (Chaps)
  • Crazing (Chaps)

    Crazing (having chaps) may appear clearly on the glazed part. The “direct” crazing means having chaps originally. The “aging” crazing means having chaps over time as you use the tableware item. There is a difference between the shrinkage rate of the glaze and that of the clay, so crazing occurs. Note that those cracks do not come from the damage of tableware items. They might appear just before use, but it is no problem in terms of use. They appear on the surface of pottery (earthenware) and semi-porcelain.

  • Iron in Powder
  • Iron in Powder

    Iron in powder may be seen clearly on the surface. Pottery (earthenware) is made from earth, which contains iron. After firing green ware, iron appears on the surface in the form of black dots. Red or black earthen clay contains much more iron, and as a result, not a little iron in powder may appear on the surface of tableware items made from this type of clay.

  • Light Pink Marks
  • Light Pink Marks

    Light pink marks may appear on the surface of tableware items. They appear when a component of the base clay becomes oxidized and then develops a color while fired. Interestingly, each tableware item has the “one of a kind” pattern of light pink marks because they appear depending on a variety of mixed conditions such as components of the base clay, glazes and firing settings, etc. You can enjoy the unique distinctiveness that adds to your own tableware item.

  • Warping
  • Warping

    Warping in shape may be clearly seen. Ceramic ware is made out of clay, so even after formed, green ware is relatively soft and wobbly. Therefore, when it is made dry, it is affected by natural conditions such as temperature and humidity, so each piece may look different in size and shape and perhaps warping in shape may appear.

Materials (Number)

Ceramics are handled differently depending on the material. MARUMITSU POTERIE attaches a material number sticker to ceramic products. Please note the material number when handling the product in order to ensure long use.

Features

・Seasoning earthenware before use and for the first few times are essential to protect from stains and soiling. Please refer to “How to season earthenware”.
・Do not use abrasive cleansers and metal scrubbing brushes for items with over glazed designs and decorations. It may cause damage to the over glaze.
・There are products with a crackle effect on the surface as an intended design, and there are some products that will develop crazing over time.
・Following features may be seen in some products which is derived by its material and manufacturing process.

Before using the item

・Before each use, soak in a sufficient amount of clean water and let it absorb for at least 30 minutes. This will block moisture from food and helps to prevent or reduce stains, mold and mildews. Visible spots may appear after this procedure, showing the item has absorbed water. The spots will disappear as it dries.

After use

・Even after seasoning, boiled extracts and oils will be gradually absorbed due to the porous nature of earthenwares. Wash immediately after each use and let it dry completely before storing to prevent odor, stains, mold and mildews.

"Kohiki Mame-Ezara" is a mini plate made by applying white powder-clay to the rougher red clay and underglaze-painted in blue or brown with the design of a bottle gourd, which is a traditional Japanese pattern associated with good luck and prosperity. A translucent glaze that is a bit thick and grayish is applied and makes a good combination with the dusted clay surface in creamy white. As a result, it gives a soft and warm feeling. The shape of each item is the one and only because they are handcrafted using a clay slab building technique. That is why you are attached to the mini plate in your choice. We recommend using it for serving condiments such as ginger, salt, lemon slices and plum pulp or even as a chopstick rest. Just add these mini plates [with subduedness of texture and lovely easy-goingness of manually stamped patterns] to the usual dining tables filled with plain tableware, you will enjoy having a calm and soothing atmosphere. Indeed, "Kohiki Mame-Ezara" warms your heart during your meals!

粉引豆絵皿




ほのぼのする豆絵皿  


10年前に初めてこの素材と出会いました。

それからずっと商品化の機会を見計らっていましたが、

今回あらためて窯屋を再訪することができました。

一定の厚みに伸ばした板状の土を手作業で切り出して、

石膏型に貼り付けて作るたたら成形が得意な窯屋です。

何度も試作を重ねようやく商品が出来上がりました。  



荒めの赤土に粉引が施され、その上に判子でゴスやサビの絵付けがされています。

釉薬は少しもったりとした灰釉がかけられていて、

クリーム色がかった粉引と重なり柔らかく温かみがあります。

それでいて、鉄粉やピンホールが現れたり、

粉引が薄くなった縁回りは焦げた赤土が顔をだし、渋く古典的な強さも感じます。  

形状は気軽に食卓に取り入れられる豆皿にしました。



丸型ですが、たたら成形で手作りされた形は、

どれもいびつに歪んでいます。

縁の立ち上がりがしっかりあるものやなだらかなものなど、

一つとして同じ形状がなく愛着がもてます。  



絵柄は判子を使って皿の中心に一柄だけ絵付をしました。

サンプルが焼き上がるまでは、絵柄がシンプルすぎないか不安でしたが、

粉引の素材感や形状のいびつさを生かした、絶妙なバランスの絵柄になりました。


モチーフは人の暮らしに昔から根付いている古典柄で考え、

最終的に決まった柄は瓢箪です。

瓢箪は縁起物として子孫繁栄や商売繁盛などのシンボルであったり、

お守りや魔除けとしても広く用いられています。


色はゴスとサビの2色展開です。

判子のかすれやムラ感が味わい深く、

ゴス色の濃淡や、サビ特有の滲みが趣のある表情です。  




生姜に塩やレモン、梅肉などの薬味入れや箸置きとしても使えるサイズ感です。

無地の器が多くなりがちな現代の食卓にちょこちょこと登場させれば、

渋さのある素材感と手押し判子のゆるい表情が場を和ませます。

ほのぼのとした時間をぜひ豆絵皿と一緒に楽しんでみてはいかがですか。
