This stoneware gratin dish has been handmade in the Hakeme tradition. Bold streaks of creamy white slip are painted over a dove gray glaze.
Form follows function for this shallow bowl. The result is old-world yet modern by virtue of broad and clever handles.
Like all of Monohanako's work, this piece is delicate. It's fragility requires its beholder to be present in the moment, even when washing a dish after use. How clever to use a handmade work of art to remind of this ideal.
- Measures approximately 7.5" x 5.5" x 2" deep- Wash by hand
