FUUFU - Japanese Yunomi Tea Cup Set in Irabo Glaze
Dai's Irabo glaze ceramics capture the Japanese admiration for the imperfect and the withered. Entirely handmade in Takayama, Japan, these pieces age beautifully with use, as their texture smoothens and colors deepen. Look closely and one can appreciate the artisanal details such as small divets where Dai's fingers carefully suspended the piece in mid-air as he painted it.
Dai believes that the beauty of Japanese pottery comes from its "harmony with nature". In keeping with this philosophy, Dai does not compromise when it comes to selecting his ingredients, whether it be clay from a particular hill 20km away or ash that is produced naturally and locally. He also shuns all tools of mass production, even opting for the mechanically-operated wheel over its electronic counterpart.
