The kurawanka bowl was one of the most common porcelain dishes made in the town of Hasami during the Edo period and was most commonly used by the peasantry. Ceramic producers of the time found resourceful ways to provide the common class with costly porcelain at cheaper prices. Kurawanka dishes are characterized by their simple, gosu blue patterns on grayish porcelain. Its charming patterns, which we have painted in thick, elongated lines, are still just as charming today as they were in the past. We bring the simple, familiar feel of kurawanka bowls to a modern audience with these patterns from the period.
