A plate that will become the star of your table

This oval plate from NAOKO HATA CERAMICS features a unique expression created by the glaze and eye-catching colors. Its easy-to-use size makes it suitable for pasta, salads, and other dishes, while the moderate depth of the design makes it suitable for stews, soups, and other liquid dishes.

The glaze on the edge of the plate looks as if it has melted, and because it is created in the kiln, no two pieces are alike. The simple, lean shape is complemented by a color that will bring out the color of your food. It is a versatile plate that will make your next dining experience more stylish. 

NAOKO HATA CERAMICS is founded by Naoko Hata, a ceramic artist from Mie Prefecture. While her works are made using traditional techniques, the textures and colors produced by her unique glaze formulations, which she has researched over and over again, shine through.

The "Melt series" is characterized by the dramatic expressions created by the dripping glaze. Hata says that she was particular about the glaze mixing, "I was researching every day to see if I could create something unique with glaze and color while preserving the texture of the pottery. For a potter, mixing glazes is a process of finding his own recipe. Researching glazes is still part of my life's work". She continues to explore the charm of glazes, for which there is no right answer.
