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.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
