These beautifully handcrafted plates come in 3 sizes to compliment your dining set for main and side dishes, small snacks, or desserts. Paired perfectly with other Iga tableware available at ITSUMO. Adding a touch of warmth, this Iga Plate is an ideal choice for serving your favourite dish on your dining table.


Each of these plates are hand thrown one by one by skilled craftsmen. Using local clay and traditional techniques, Iga ware (伊賀焼, Iga-yaki) is one of Japan’s most highly-regarded traditional pottery styles, and is rooted in Iga city of Mie prefecture, Japan. Iga ware carries a rich tradition that can be traced back to the Nara Period (710-794), featuring wild beauty actualized by the unique quality of the soil. The clay and natural glazes are local to the region that are extremely resistant to heat and react well to repeated firing. Iga clay offers an elevated level of hardness while the pebbles in the clay result in natural character and texture.


Pottery that is considered earthenware is porous and considerably low in density compared to porcelain, meaning it will absorb liquids. Therefore, before using Iga ware for the first time, please follow the care instruction in order to protect the ceramic from food stain or odor.


Due to the handcrafted quality of these products, there will be individual differences in shade, gloss and size of glaze. Its beauty is one of a kind.
