Steam fresh veggies and prepare fluffy batches of rice in beautiful style with this eye-catching traditional steamer, handmade from earthenware by local potters in Japan. The clay unearthed from the Iga region has been heralded for centuries due to its porous nature and its naturally higher level of heat resistance.

Each piece is made in a plaster mold and then shaved with a plane to make a rough surface. The design is dried in the sun for one week before the first firing and base glaze. Then, in a two-person process, a dense second glaze is applied while the excess is wiped off and checked for quality. After a final firing in the kiln and individual inspection, the result is a traditional and beautiful piece of serveware designed to take you from oven to table. Handmade in Japan.
