The glaze reminiscent of the sky and the sea is a single item of "Kataguchi" that shines on a scarlet background.

The blue glaze flows outwards, giving a taste to one mouth.

The pattern of blue glaze flowing on the outside gives the bowl a change.

I make my own natural ash glaze by turning sunflowers that I have grown into ash and mixing them with burned ash such as grapes, sunflowers, and figs.

Recently, there are few potters who make their own glaze from ash making, but we are particular about it because it has an important effect on color development.

I hope you can feel the depth of the vessel.


The precursor of natural ash glaze


  • 1980
  • Shigeo Takemura


Been making ceramic potteries with originally invented glazes for more than 30 years

I was born in Yamashina, Kyoto, in 1953.

I have learned most of my skills and basis of craftsmanship under Morihisa Kimura who was one of the designated intangible cultural assets in Kyoto prefecture.

For more than 30 years, I have manufactured products with my original glaze.


The collaboration of colors created by ash and fire

We make the glaze made by ashing natural plants such as cedars, grapes, and sunflowers.

Ashes are only extracted in small portions each time; A huge amount of plants and woods provides only the handful of them.

By dissolving the extracted ashes into the water, and replacing them constantly to remove impurities we finally get the ash glaze.
