The other day, my friend gave me a tour around her favorite places around Kamakura.  I met this plate at an artisan pottery shop (Utsuwa-Shoken) and fell in love.  It’s a work by a young potter Naotsugu Yoshida, one of his black and white series.
It wasn’t cheap, but I couldn’t resist.  A simple, flat plate – I use it every morning for breakfast.
