In Japan, a Katakuchi is traditionally a vessel used for pouring Sake. It has a spout on one side (katakuchi in Japanese means mouth on one side). The bowls are now often used when cooking to easily mix or pour, and make original serving dishes.
Dimensions (approximate): 6"W (+ spout) x 4"W x 3"H
Florence resides between France, Connecticut and Boston. Of her work, she says:
"My influence is certainly Asian. I made several trips to Japan but I have been
mostly influenced by the Korean aesthetic.
While in Osaka I saw a simple and humble piece in the Osaka’s museum of
ceramics which broke my heart. Well, there were two. One was a black gourd
from Korea, the other a white vase, also from Korea, not even regular or
symmetrical but full of elegance in its simplicity. It was a lesson than I humbly try
to follow. (...)
I like minimalism and simplicity and give priority to the shape of a piece so the decoration is secondary. And if I put a decoration, I find inspiration in my everyday life in France and in nature and like keep it simple. "
