Cuir Kinsai Kaku Coffee Bowl Plate - An Original Hataman Touen Creation

The Cuir Kinsai Kaku Coffee Bowl Plate represents a distinctive artistic expression by Hataman Touen.

Derived from the French word "Cuir," meaning "leather," this collection is defined by its textured and lustrous surface, artfully capturing the essence of leather's tactile qualities.

The inception of the Cuir series marked a pioneering endeavor to replicate the opulence associated with leather using porcelain, seeking fresh perspectives in pottery craftsmanship. This journey spanned five years of rigorous experimentation, ultimately culminating in a testament to Hataman Touen's commitment to innovation.

This Hataman Touen creation involves a meticulous process, including 5 to 7 firings, demanding both time and dedication to achieve its final form.

Incorporating the Seigaiha pattern, our aim was to harmoniously blend Japanese and Western aesthetics, resulting in a captivating fusion of styles.
