Kyoto round fans, elegant touch of freshness
Sozugama is a potter’s studio where craftsmen who have inherited the techniques of Kyoto’s Kiyomizu-yaki and Fukuoka’s Koishiwara-yaki.
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.
