Sugar bowl with lid, from 3-piece tea service

Wiener Werkstätte

One of a three-piece tea service, the sugar bowl is a small silver container with a lobed shape and a flat lid with a bone finial. The finial is carved into four lobes to match the body of the pot. The surface of the silver is not glassy-smooth; it has a hand-worked, hammered surface. The overall design impression is of satisfying geometric proportions with a slightly organic feel.

Shigaraki ware plate

Takahashi Rakusai III

A rectangular shaped plate with eight circular patterns. The rim is slightly flared out to create the concave shape. The top surface is unglazed, scorched to an intense red. The bottom does not have foot. In the kiln, the thick clay slabs were stacked close together so that the floating ash landed on the edge of the plate facing the flame. The circular patterns are areas that were protected from the flame by cylinder clay spacers.
