In a producing method of the products, which shapes are formed not by an electric potter's wheel, but ashikerirokuro (a kicking potter's wheel), We baked all products in semi-basement anagama, we try to protect Japanese tradition and culture.
All our products are characterized by Yakishime style. The Yakishime refers a high-fired pottery without using glaze. Depending on the direction of the flame or how straw and ash cover the products, the finish of each product is different. Beauty of nature that express texture of clay attracts us. The more the pottery is used, the more its charm is getting to grow. In the famous place of production, for example Bizen,Echizen,Iga,Shigaraki and Tokoname, you can see yakishime that makes the best use of traits of each place.
We have kept making products by the clay mined in Chikuhou that is unique and full of attraction.
