Iga Suribachi Mortar
S: 15 cm
279 East 6th Avenue
Vancouver BC V5T 1J7
Azmaya’s Iga ceramic mortar bowl features a delicate combed interior, providing the ideal surface type for grinding sesame seeds, beans, miso, tofu and many other herbs and spices. Use in combination with the Sansho wood pestle (available separately) and you will unfold the most enticing and delicious flavours for all your home cooked meals.
Handcrafted using traditional techniques, Iga-ware uses clay and natural glazes local to the Iga region (Mie Prefecture) which 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. The solidly rustic style provides an organic and easy presence in your kitchen, while the simple beauty of the outer glaze builds on the functionality of the bowl by allowing it to double as an elegant serving dish. After grinding your seasonings, simply add the rest of your ingredients and serve to your friends and family directly from the bowl.
The large sizes are ideal for a big portion of goma-ae, tororo-imo, or mixing pesto with pasta, etc, allowing you to mix all the ingredients in just one serving bowl.
Due to the handcrafted quality of these products, individual differences in shade, gloss & size of glaze are to be expected.
*Size L & XL are disqualified for free shipping.
