Hizen Yoshida ware to the world through free manufacturing
KataKoto is a ceramic brand that started in 2019.
I wanted to do something in Saga Prefecture, my hometown.
I was impressed with Hizen Yoshida-yaki, which has high quality and technology, but its name is rare.
Arita ware and Imari ware are famous in Saga Prefecture, but Hizen Yoshida ware's workshop has so far undertaken subcontracting work for Arita ware and Nagasaki's Hasami ware.
Therefore, the name of the place of production was never known, but its technical capabilities are high.
Another reason for noticing the fact that Hizen-Yoshida ware has no image or concept of fixation is that it is possible to make fun pottery regardless of tradition.
The concept of “KataKoto” is a free design that turns a little everyday ideas into shape, interesting ideas, and fun pottery to use.
