Jars Ceramics presents the Dashi collection

New Castle, DE, May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Jars Ceramics presents Dashi, a stoneware collection of eight bowls and three plates. Each bowl shape and glaze are unique and beautiful items that are remarkably functional, food safe and even dishwasher safe. The collection emphasizes bowls because they are for food and home decor and because bowls are the new plates, serving as the main course for everyday meals. Bowls are used for all-in-one meals: pasta bowls, soup bowls, stew bowls, acai bowls, noodle bowls, curry bowls, rice bowls, fruit bowls, dessert bowls and Moreover.

Each piece in the Dashi collection is entirely handmade. Since its creation by Pierre Jars in 1857, the craft of earthenware has been passed down from generation to generation in the Jars factory: this centuries-old know-how has raised Jars to the rank of Living Heritage Company (EPV).

Created by designer-ceramist Pierre Casenove, the Dashi collection displays a chic rustic look that honors the raw material, the purity and the object in all its simplicity. Dashi celebrates the art of the imperfect object, the spectacular marriage of raw earth and ash glazes. From these unique pieces emerges a poetry of matter, a mixture of strength and softness. These creations correspond perfectly to the emergence of the imperfect, which illustrates a marked return to respect for nature, including its asperities and asperities.

Stoneware is undoubtedly the most resistant and natural ceramic. Unlike earthenware, it is waterproof and non-porous, even without glaze. As a result, it keeps food hot or cold for a long time. The glazes of Dashi objects are made from vegetable ashes and offer an infinite palette of bright, deep, crystallized, cracked, matte or shiny tones. The enamel is dipped with a ladle, applied with a brush or delicately sprayed by hand, the craftsman’s work is always beautiful and precise.

During Grand Feu firing, the enamel fuses with the stoneware. It then reveals its nuances, its subtle and fascinating vagaries. Each item in the Dashi collection is distinctive: “not quite the same, not quite different”. A beautiful object that knows how to stand the test of time.

The Dashi collection is available at jarsusa.com and at many fine retailers. Bowls are $79 and plates are $89. Jars USA, 802 Centerpoint Blvd., New Castle, DE 19720 https://www.jarsusa.com/
