Three-Color (Green/Yellow/White) Glazed Soup Bowl, Large, Second Grade

This bowl is labeled as second grade for a small blemish, which I couldn’t tell, but functions normally. It means this is a great deal.

This is a true Mingei pottery, and rarely found in the U.S. 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.

Product Description

 

This bowl is labeled as second grade for a small blemish, which I couldn’t tell, but functions normally.

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.

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

Other than serving soup, yogurt, and cereal, this bowl would also look great to serve olives, pickles, or condiments.

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 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 two-color glazed bowl is microwavable, and dishwasher safe.
