Shigaraki is made with clay showcasing particularly warm and natural touch and appearance. Gohonte has unique light cream and gray pattern with lovely uneven Tebineri feel to it. Gohonte is a pattern created by fire inside a kiln, looks like a leaf of Japanese Maple and also a fire itself due to its light orange-ish colour It is not possible to create Gohonte pattern with electric fire. Please soak it in water for a couple of hours and air dry it prior to use to prevent cracking. It will acquire deeper and shinier complexity on its appearance as you use it, and it is a part of Shigaraki’s charm.
