Handcrafted by japanese artisans, our Shinrin Dessert Plate is all about the glaze. Finished with a reactive glaze, the clean, modern shape of this deep green stoneware dessert plate displays unique patterning and tonal effects. The star burst like pattern forms an interesting elegant texture on the plate. Fired at very high temperatures, the Shinrin has exceptional strength and durability. Japanese stoneware plates carry a rare high gloss glaze, which is distinct to Japanese pottery. The Shinrin Dessert Plates carries the same glaze and a rich deep green colour inspired by the dense forests, making this product a topic of conversation for sure. Most of the colours used in Japanese pottery are inspired and derived from nature, The Shinrin Dessert Plates is no different.
These products are oven and dishwasher friendly, which adds to the versatility of the product. Japanese pottery also known as tojiki or yakimono, is one of the oldest forms of art and craft in Japan.
