・ Warm Mashiko kiln: Yoshizawa kiln
The Yoshizawa kiln, which is very popular on SNS, is a Mashiko kiln where about 30 members work, centered on Mr. and Mrs. Yasuhisa Yoshizawa and Mr. Rie. A delicate and cute vessel is made by a technique called "tatara", which uses a plaster mold to make a vessel from plate-shaped clay. Featuring a warm matte texture, the antique shades fit into any table.
Introducing works that are perfect for placing small sweets that are indispensable for afternoon tea.
・ Feeling of glaze and decoration: Takehiro Ito
How about incorporating autumn colors into your life with a mug made by Takehiro Ito, who is making pottery in Mashiko?
The soda ash put into the kiln combines with the soil, and each vitrified surface is finished in a different color and pattern, so it is a beautiful vessel that can be said to be one-of-a-kind. This work is characterized by the decoration of the handle of the mug.
The small mug made in the electric kiln is warm and recommended for coffee time.
・ Delicate and soft image work: Chikako Kuwata
Chikako Kuwata's vessel, which is carved by hand one by one and enjoys an elegant pattern. The fine pattern and matte texture give a very gentle impression. This time, we will introduce pitchers, teapots, and plates.
・ Unique painting that feels the story: Hizumi Pass
Hizumi Togesha is manufactured by Keiji Miura and Arisa Miura in Yamaguchi Prefecture. The painting that makes the story float feels nostalgic. All hand-painted, warm and autumn-like colors. Please take this opportunity to enjoy the world view of Hizumi Pass.
・ Modern and cute painting: Kazumi Kanno
Kazumi Kanno is producing in Tajimi City, Gifu Prefecture. This time, we will introduce works inspired by old Chinese pottery (Cizhou ware). A picture is drawn on white makeup (*), and fine lines are drawn by a scraping technique that scrapes the surface to give a different color. Mr. Sugano's work has a strong presence with a clear contrast between black and white. Introducing mugs, hill plates, cake plates, etc. with animal patterns such as birds, peonies, and rabbits.
