Description

VK plates by Iwatemo combine Finnish design with Japanese ceramic traditions. The plates are designed by Ville Kokkonen and made in Japan. Their distinctive design makes the porcelain plates great for serving food or as a part of home decor, for example for storing and displaying jewellery.

The plates are made by hand on the potter’s wheel. The material, soft white clay, comes from Kyusyu island located in southern Japan, and natural wood ash is used as glaze according to centuries-old Japanese production methods. Iwatemo porcelain dishes are fired 1.5 times longer than usual in order to increase their durability.
