Kawa Dish with Gold Glaze by Luft Tanaka, Made to Order

$450per item

About

This listing is for a Kawa dish with a gold glaze. The glaze on this dish contains actual gold and it’s made by hand in Brooklyn by the designer (and Souda's Co-Owner), Luft Tanaka. Each dish is made by casting liquid porcelain into a mold that's made entirely of leather. This highly-unique casting method results in ceramics that capture the fluidity and the texture of the leather molds. Process explanation: Each dish starts off as a simple pen drawing. Once Luft determines the approximate forms, he starts sketching the dish in a 3D Modeling software until he is happy with the shape. Using the 3D model as a guide, Luft creates a fabric pattern for each mold. The pattern is laid out on high-quality, beautifully textured leather. Each piece of the mold is cut-out and sewn together. Once the sewing is complete, the mold (which at this point resemble an inside-out handbag) is ready for casting. Liquid porcelain is poured directly into the leather mold. Once dried, a seam ripper is used to delicately peal away the leather from the porcelain. Each piece is fired in a kiln, a clear glaze is applied to the inside of the dish and it’s fired again. Once that is complete, a gold glaze is hand-painted onto the dish and it's fired for a final time. Dimensions: 3.5” x 3.5” x 1.5”.
