完全な真円ではない僅かな歪み、ムラのある鋼板の表情と内面の艶やかなコーティング。
ヘラ絞りによる成形から、鋼板に酸化被膜と表情を作りだす空焼き、錆を防ぐ内面のホーロー処理といった全行程を
職人の手仕事を経て形にしたほうろう水盤。外面の鋼板は手で触れるごとに手沢で表情が変化して行きます。
過度に作り込まない温かみのある簡素なフォルムと味わい深い不均一なテクスチャ。
様々な空間様式に馴染む植物と生け花の器です。

A slightly skewed shape, not a perfect circle, the expressions of a nonuniform steel sheet, and the lustrous coating of the inner surface. All steps of the process - shaping using metal spinning, then baking to create an oxide film and expressions in the steel sheet, and then enameling of the interior to prevent rust – are carried out manually by our artisans to form this enamel basin. The expressions of the external steel sheet progressively change as the metal is worn through handling, each time you touch it. A simple, warm form, not overworked, and a deeply nuanced nonuniform texture. A vessel for plants and ikebana arranging, that blends in with a variety of spaces and modes.
