Fist Exhibition in 2020 is Shigaraki potter, Nozomu Shinohara.

The first exhibition in 2020 is an exhibition of Shigaraki potter, Nozomu Shinohara.

Shigaraki ware that fires for several days in an ana kiln (woodfiring kiln).

The period of continuous burning varies are depending on the pottery, but during the firing for about 5 days, the work of putting firewood its mostly red pine and gradually raising the temperature, get increase the ash at the opening of the wood kiln, and then do work such as melting the ash by raising the temperature inside the kiln is performed.


The technique, such as how melting the ash and when the firewood is turned off are depending on the potter, but the part where the ash melts and looks like glass, such as green, is called a “vedro”, and the beautiful view of the Shigaraki’s ash is totally different from other Yakishime works such as Bizen.


Nozomu Shinohara makes many Yakishime (well fired) works created with cray, firewood and flame.

Among them, the scenery of Shinohara’s Vedro is very beautiful, and you we easily imagine the ash is melting like dancing, even if we are not in the firing place.



In this exhibition, we are collecting and holding Japanese sake wares.

Both those who like drinking and those who are not drink sake alcohol, you can decorate it on shelves, or insert flowers in it, or otherwise everybody can just enjoy his works.

You can see a powerful works same as Nozomu Shinohara’s straight and honest personality..

Do not miss it.
