Kutani Ware


Profile

The third generation potter of Tamura Kiln.
This potter studied under his grandfather, Kinsei and has been prized by many exhibitions.
His characteristic techniques are Iroe (multicolored over the glaze) with the brush-writing micro calligraphy, which earned a reputation as highly refined work.
Some of the works are in the collection of the Arthur M. Sackler gallery of the Smithsonian institution.
This potter was designated as Intangible Cultural Asset as a holder of Kutani Ware Techniques by Ishikawa prefecture in 2005.
He has been practicing what he inherited, passing it to his daughter, Seito, and devoting himself to higher calligraphic skills on Kutani Ware; the brush-writing micro calligraphy has been succeeded by chosen one among the offspring and developed as sophisticated work by family lineage.
