Kyoyaki / Kiyomizuyaki pottery Touan was founded in 1922 at Higashiyama Sennyuji Temple in Kyoto. There are approximately 20 craftsmen working on the molding and painting in the main pottery studio.
Touan is characterized by its vivid colors and unparalleled strength. Kiyomizuyaki is known for its “overglaze painting,” but Touan uses “underglaze painting,”
The fourth generation of Yoshiaki Dobuchi, now the head of the pottery, developed and established “Hana Kessho-Krystal,” which can be enjoyed in a wide variety of crystal forms.
