This elegant, large-scale vessel is a Japanese widemouth stoneware jar (kame) traditionally used for storing water and other liquids. This 19th-century example continues traditional forms and was likely used as a fermentation vessel in the production of sake. The large ceramic form was built up in sections using the coiled technique and has a dramatically tapered form with a narrow base, rounded shoulders and a flared lip. The jar is left undecorated, finished only by a thin, hand-applied glaze of neutral brown color and matte texture.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
