1616 / TY “Standard” Design: Teruhiro Yanagihara

Following the tradition of Arita pottery, Teruhiro Yanagihara developed a new series of ceramics using the traditional technique of clay made of crushed stone, though in a different composition. The result is a high-density kind of clay that makes the pottery items extremely strong and heat and stain-resistant, even without glaze. A special agent added to the clay provides the Standard series with a characteristic light grey, mat tone.
The series clearly show Yanagihara's interest in borderless design. Items don't have predetermined functions but allow different combinations and usages and good stackability among the Standard products. Square plates, for example, can be used as trays and small round plates double as lids. Bowls can be used for both Japanese rice or Western-style morning cereals, while the small cup is made for Italian espresso, it also perfectly serves Japanese sake.
