The inherited techniques of Kyoto-style pottery
Shunzan-gama is a third-generation pottery maker located in Sennyu-ji temple area which has long been abundant in kilns. The studio has inherited the distinguishing style of Ogata Kenzan (1663-1743), a potter active in the middle of the Edo period. The works of Shunzan-gama are well known for their characteristic flower designs completely covering the surface which still preserves the tenderness of soft clay. The studio creates the earthenware adapted to the modern lifestyle, mastering the colorful painting and openwork carving techniques of Kyoto-style pottery cultivated through its 100-year-old history.

Sacred purity of unfinished wood
The studio is specializing in woodworking, producing furnishings and votive objects for Shinto shrines and religious ceremonies. Ceremonial implements are generally made of unfinished wood without any lacquer coating. Beautiful white-grained hinoki (Japanese cypress) wood is believed to represent the concept of purity so important in Shinto religion. Sometimes artisan even purifies himself and puts on white clothing before starting to work. The impressive array of assembled woodwork planes can tell you a remarkable story of Kyoto traditional wood joint-making and bending techniques.

Sozugama is a potter’s studio where craftsmen who have inherited the techniques of Kyoto’s Kiyomizu-yaki and Fukuoka’s Koishiwara-yaki.
The celadon of the Sozugama kiln expresses a deep blue color by kneading pigment into the fabric and applying a glaze.
Adding the Koishiwara-yaki technique of “tobikanna” to the clay, the glaze pools in the grooves of the scraped clay and regular patterns emerge.
In this way, we are exploring a new world of celadon that cannot be found anywhere else.In recent years, we have also focused on developingoverseas sales channels and have incorporated the experience gained overseas into new works of art,including Western-style tableware.
We are also developing a wide range of products, including accessories with a story behind them, which are original to the Sohgama brand.

Nozomu Takagi, a lacquerware master, established this new studio in 2017 after 13 years of training in Kyoto, Japan, to carry on the techniques of Kyoto lacquerware.

Kyo-lacquerware flourished with the introduction of lacquer culture from the ancient capital of Nara to the Heian period in 794.

Having developed along with the tea ceremony, it possesses an inner beauty of wabi( simple elegance) and sabi( refinement).

Discerning tea masters, who were involved in the tea ceremony in various ways, required tea caddies, confectionery containers, trays, and other items to serve matcha tea.

The studio produces tea ceremony utensils and tableware, and also repairs and restores arts and crafts, such as the restoration of the Ofunaboko floats used in the Gion Festival.

Silvery gloss created by careful polishing
Silvery gloss is the greatest feature of Kyo-gawara, the tiles that cover the roofs of temples and shrines. Kyoto tiles are made from high-quality clay, polished with a metal spatula until they are shiny and fired in a kiln at a high temperature. Asada Kawara is the only factory which still produces Kyoto tiles by hand. Onigawara (ridge-end tiles bearing the face of a demon), an indispensable element of traditional buildings, are reproduced here for restoration purposes after a thorough research about their style, materials and production method.

Rich glow of gold brocade
At Orisho Hirai, silk threads are intertwined with gold threads and woven into splendid gold brocade priest robes. According to the Nishijin weaving tradition, the umebata loom is installed below ground level to create the perfect condition for weaving—humidity softens the silk threads, making them easier to deal with. Kyoto traditional technique called hikibaku consists of affixing gold leaves on a sheet of washi paper with lacquer, cutting it into extremely thin filaments (about 0.3 mm) and weaving the obtained gold threads into the silk fabric for the luxurious three-dimensional effect.
