Large porcelain bowl in rustic gold/bronze/charcoal.
Made in Japan
Hand thrown, hand glazed and wood-fired by the artist.
With this bowl, gold lustre is glazed all over including the outside base, but only to show it's subtle gleam through the rustic surface. This sophisticated juxtaposition is the artist's strong feature reflecting the very Japanese aesthetics.
This bowl will quietly shine on your table. A great centre piece, large and deep enough to hold assorted fruits. Also ideal for serving pasta or Asian soupy noodle.

About the Maker
Fukumura Ryuta is an up-and-coming ceramic artist based in Kyushu, southern Japan. As the second generation ceramicist from Nichigetsu Gama, a family owned studio/gallery, he draws from the area's rich heritage as well as creating his own style with a contemporary edge.
Fukumura crafts functional porcelain ware with rustic textures, often referred to as wabi-sabi as a distinctive element in Japanese philosophy. Fukumura is a keen practitioner of tea ceremony and flower arrangement, which are closely linked to the Japanese mainstream ceramic tradition. A recent throwing residence in New York had a large influence on him and is well reflected in his series of pieces with metalic overglaze.
Soon after completing a ceramic art course at Kyushu Zoukei Junior College, Fukumura began throwing full time at Nichigetsu Gama. He grew up and lives in Ukiha city, where he digs local soil, mixes clay, throws and fires pots in his own log-burning climbing kiln (Nobori gama) .
