We make Oribe, candy glaze, ash glaze and other types of pottery in Kameoka, next to Kyoto. We aim to make pottery that can be used in daily life to add a touch of elegance and glamour to the atmosphere, and that is easy to use, has a pleasant rim and is light and easy to handle when picked up, while still providing a warm feeling.
