Profile

He is the first son of KAWASOE, Torataka who is the head of Kosen Kiln.
He studied at Arita College of Ceramics, Saga prefecture and makes porcelain at Kosen Kiln now.
Imari Arita traditional craftsman.
He repeats trial and error to gain Nabeshima Ware's minute traditional skill for himself. The character of coloring is touching heartstrings.
He doesn't simply copy the semicircular repeated wave design or the hexagonal design by engraving and the patalof the cherry blossoms or the peony, but also put his own special expression. The process of line drawing or "dami (hand-painting on porcelain by the fat brush)" is minutely and careful done one by one.
He makes an excellent Nabeshimaseiji (celadon) and received high evaluation among every place. He enthusiastically works to tell Nabaeshima Ware's tradition towards the future.
