A studio reopened after a CORONA pandemic (1)


Dear Readers. 

I believe that the long tunnel caused by COVID19 for three years is also gradually beginning to see some light. By taking basic infection control measures, we will also continue to meet the needs of our domestic and international customers.

We would like to introduce some of the reopened workshops that were closed due to the COVID19.

1)Rakunyu-Kama  ( Kyo-yaki , Kiyomizu-yaki  )

 Rakuyaki is a type of pottery produced using a natural distortion process that does not use a potter’s wheel, and firing in a kiln for only a short period of time. Therefore, it was in line with the spirit of Rikyu, who respected the view of nature. It has become an indispensable pottery for the tea ceremony, and is still appreciated to the present day.

 This studio is a unique studio that works on the fusion of traditional Raku ware and current ceramics. You can create your own unique Raku Ware Tea Bowl.
