Boxed sake bottle / flower vase
Made in Japan
Hand thrown, one-of-a-kind collectible art piece by highly acclaimed studio potter Ohara Koichi 大原光一. Box included.
With this bottle, wonderfully dripping glazes make an interesting "keshiki" - a kind of graphic to be appreciated - from 360 degree. The glazing colours are all muted but appear in many different shades of warm brown, steel grey, sandy rose and more.
Grit mixed in the glaze and the volcanic texture on the surface add the tactile feature to this extraordinary bottle.
We suggest boxed guinomi B to match up with this bottle.
This bottle is functional and suitable for your everyday's drink. The artist himself is keen on tasting sake, and his pieces are much loved by the Japanese drinkers! They highly value how the taste can felt changed with Ohara's sake ware.
