Beautiful little porcelain containers by Mr. Shinya Taniguchi

Mr. Shinya Taniguchi is my favorite potter, who is based in Kyoto.

His creations are very simple and it is hard to differenciate them from those mass produced products, because they have perfectly been made by his intricated technic.

This container is simple with blue lines on the lid. He does not use any mould to shape his works, but he uses only his hands and wheels at most.

These calculated curves are absolute beauty.

The size is about 8cm in diameter and hight of about 8.5cm.

You can store pickles or something like cotton balls etc. It can be used for anything you like.

Mr. Taniguchi particulaly like this kind of container by himself.


These are also small containers or bottles which Mr. Taniguchi has been continuously making and they are also my favorite things of his collections.

Each of them are shaped by hand, so all of these little containers have different shapes.

These little containers are called Furidashi (振出し)in Japanese and it means to take things out by shaking the bottle. So you can keep some kinds of suppliments etc in it.

They are all around 10cm hight.
