Plum Plum Bowls


In Japan, this type of flower-shaped vessel is often placed on the table to celebrate the short-lived beauty of spring. As the name suggests, these delightful dishes are formed in the shape of plum blossoms.

With their high walls and deeply scalloped edges, Marumitsu's two sizes of Plum Plum bowls are perfect for side dishes, plating special foods like scallops, gelato and sweets alike.

A Japanese method known as the "kohiki technique," the distinctive coloring in this collection results from a reaction between the dish's base of pale yellow earthen clay and a layer of white powder clay that is applied on top. After being finished with a transparent glaze, the result is a subtle variance in shades of pink, with the soft yellow clay coming through in some parts.

Due to kiln firing and the nature of clay and hand-glazed pieces, subtle variations may occur from item to item. Small color differences or the occasional glaze drip on the bottom of the piece are not considered a defect but a true testament to each piece's handcrafted nature and the natural characteristics of pottery.

Since 1950, the artisans of Marumitsu have been creating heirloom-worthy ceramics in Seto, Aichi, Japan's pottery capital.
Here, the oldest kilns in the country continue to burn, keeping alive ancient traditions & sharing the wonders of Japanese ceramics with a new generation of collectors.

Marumitsu's breathtaking creations are known for their nature-inspired silhouettes and nuanced French style.

The thoughtful approach of Marumitsu is made evident in their belief that "meals are delightful." Each piece is created with a deeply intentional perspective to be both aesthetically beautiful and exceptionally functional for daily use.

Incorporating the best of time-honored and modern techniques, master artisans skillfully form Marumitu Poterie's signature pieces from natural clays harvested throughout the surrounding hillsides of Seto.
