Product Description


Two-color and three-color glazed pottery, called sansai in Japanese and sancai in English, is colored by different glaze combinations. The history of sansai pottery is old, and perfected in the Tang Dynasty (618-907) in China. Since then, the technique spread all over the world.

After being shaped by a potter's wheel, the bowls are waiting to be glazed, colored, and fired.

The rice bowl is made at Seto Hongyo Gama, a potters’ workshop which has been continuously producing high quality handmade pottery since around 1800. Read more about how pottery is made at Set Hongyo Gama from here.

In Japan, rice bowls are personal items, just like mug cups in the United States. Even within a family, rice bowls are not to be shared. Therefore, the choice is very personal. Children’s rice bowls tend to be tiny with prints of their favorite characters. Men choose large ones, and women choose little smaller ones to accommodate their appetite. Also several extra rice bowls are kept at home for guests.

This rice bowl is a large size, and perfect for a man.

The Japanese say that good earthenware “grows.” This means that by use and over time, brand new earthenware changes color gradually. As you use this rice bowl, it will “grow” and gives you a pleasure of owning an authentic Japanese pottery.

This rice bowl has a fine cracking pattern, called kannyu in Japanese. Kannyu is created by a different contraction rate between the clay and glaze as the pottery cools after being fired. In Japan, Kannyu is intentionally made as a visual pattern, and doesn’t affect the integrity of the pottery’s structure.

A three-color glazed bowl is microwavable, and dishwasher safe.
