BY Fumihiro Tamura
This timeless, classical vase made by Japanese artisan Fumihiro Tamura is available in gleaming black or white glaze, and in a large or small size. Tamura works in Okazaki and uses local materials from the earth to create his ceramics. The black vase is made from a clay mixture composed of soil that Tamura digs up from favorite areas he has found after extensive exploration. Its black glaze is produced from a carefully researched rock that Tamura finds in the mountains and grinds down to a glaze. His lustrous white vase is made from a white clay and porcelain stone mixture found in Seto, and he finishes it with a clear, milky glaze.
