Japanese artisans are renowned across the globe for their expertise in ceramic and stoneware arts, particularly for their beautiful glazes and finishes. Kilns, materials, glazes, shapes and methods of craftsmanship vary slightly from region to region to offer a variety of high quality and unique works. The Stone Terra Green collection features a subtly matted green finish speckled across a brown under layer, which is visible on the rims and edges of the pieces. Some surfaces display a slight rippled texture and every piece will possess a soft organic shape. The Japanese artisans who learn the ceramic and stone trade do so through years of training from generations before them, and as a result produce the highest quality stone dinnerware collections. We are sure you'll love the addition of Terra Green Stone serving pieces to your green and naturally styled table. Dishwasher and microwave safe.
