Assiettes décoratives / Decorative dishes
The sayas (saggars) used at the time of operation of the Noborigama. These containers were used in the firing of pottery to enclose or protect wares being fired inside the kiln. Unused and put aside, the sayas are here transformed into vases or decorative plates, thanks to the enameling of FUJIHIRA TOUGEI, and thus upcycled and given an extra dimension.
