Katakuchi Black – Takashi Endo
This stylish Katakuchi poring vessel is hand crafted by Kanagawa based ceramic artist Takashi Endo. It can also be used as a Yuzamashi to cool water for green tea.
Endo San’s style features organic textures juxtaposed with sharp, modern design. His work is based on a foundation of monochromatic colours, and expresses the true nature of the clay which he sources from the Iga and Shigaraki regions.
He uses a purion clay which after using a reduction firing method, followed by cold reduction, reveals natural artefacts like feldspar. This creates a unique stone like finish that is textural and organic. This, coupled with his contemporary and minimalistic design, makes for distinctive pieces that are instantly recognisable as his own.
