Kohiki Shinogi Vase Small
BY Hitoshi Kato
This monochromatic collection of handmade ceramic vessels by Hitoshi Kato is an RW Guild favorite. Kato creates his signature vases and dinnerware using Shinogi しのぎ. This reductive process creates a rhythmic pattern that adds a geometric element to anywhere it is placed. Master the mix with this collection ceramics used every day in our café La Mercerie.
Shinogi しのぎ: A decorative ceramic technique where ridgelines are carved on to the surface of dried clay, prior to being fired. This traditional method takes its name from the ridge of the thickest point of a samurai swords blade, known as the “shinogi”.
