Oxymoron Bowl

Regular price $58 Unit price  per 

This line of dark green porcelain tableware by ceramicist, Yumiko Iihoshi, was originally designed for a well known Japanese curry house called 'Oxymoron'. The glaze variation and tonal differences found in this particular line of ceramics feel warm and one-of-a-kind, while still being minimal and clean for everyday use.

Due to its handmade nature, there may be variation in tone, color, size and texture. These variations are signs of beauty. The glaze pattern will be different for each piece.

Trained in Kyoto and now based in Tokyo, Yumiko Iihoshi created her line of fine porcelain with designs that tread the fine line of "handcrafted mass manufacturing" by incorporating the artisanal handcraft nature of ceramic in classic, elegant designs Craftsmen and potteries all across Japan participate in the manual process of creating Yumiko Iihoshi designs.
