This plate demonstrates how Takashi Endo’s ceramics are both bold and delicate. Each plate is unique and handcrafted from purion clay. The plate has a speckled effect as a result of Endo’s favoured firing process, imbuing it with an interesting and organic texture and heightening an awareness of its materiality. The raised edge reiterates the piece’s circular form and essence of "enso", which Endo repeatedly attends to in his designs.
As all products are handmade, sizes and colour may vary slightly.
