A Katakuchi is a small spouted pouring vessel in Japan. Traditionally they are uses for serving sake, although they have many used such as, for preparing tea, and for gravy, sauces and dressings. This Katakuchi has an organic form, allowing the hands to wrap nicely around the body. The unglazed exterior meets the hands with tactility.
Please note as each vessel is handcrafted the finish and size may vary slightly – each piece will be unique.
