You will make a vessel with porcelain clay on the wheel. Porcelain clay is known for its pure white color after firing. Arita ware and Imari ware are well known porcelain ceramics. It is quite difficult to manage using soft clay on the wheel and you might not get what you wanted, but this handmade only one pottery will sure be a special piece for you.

Studied under Taizo Kuroda, a white porcelain artist. Moved his atelier in Itoshima in 2018.
Dishes are tools, we enjoy "watching" and "using", but I would like to add one more word, "making". I run a workshop besides my art work so that people can enjoy and learn more about pottery.
