Painting experience in the great outdoors. Let's make "fashionable" Kutani ware in Ukita kiln Mr. Kengo Ukita of Ukita kiln who has a history of attending a design school in Tokyo after training at Tokuda Yasokichi Kobo. The pottery environment he got from around Komatsu Airport to the point where he moved from around Komatsu Airport is a source of playful inspiration when he actually visits it. A peaceful environment with abundant nature around the workshop, a view of the greenery that jumps into your eyes from the window of the work desk, and occasional sessions with friends in the gallery. Inspired by them, the pop style of Mr. Ukita's work feels a bit different from the classic motif associated with the word "Kutani ware". In the GEMBA program, you can experience overpainting by sketching the underpainting in the backyard under the guidance of Mr. Ukita. Overpainting, which begins with a sketch in a green environment, is a unique and valuable experience. * For foreign nationals: Information on the day will be in Japanese only.

Experience overpainting starting from sketching in nature

A painting experience that starts from sketching while looking at the stairs leading to the river and many vegetation in the large garden behind the workshop. I will draw my own original motif under the guidance of Mr. Ukita instead of the existing pattern. The experience of being able to receive guidance directly from sketches should be unique and rare.

Learn how to use Kutani ware, which appears in "fashionable" work making

Mr. Ukita is good at copying "Kutani" in addition to his own work. At Tokuda Yasokichi Kobo, where he used to practice, he was recognized for his copying technique from an early stage, and in about three years he received "certification" from his master. Kutani's brushstrokes are inherited in his pop style, and you can directly hear the fun of it.

Admire the Kutani ware design created by music

Mr. Ukita has been engaged in music activities since he was studying design in Tokyo, and his love for music is reflected in every piece of work with musical instruments and jazz sessions as motifs. At the cafe and gallery, you can also appreciate the rhythmic works that are typical of Mr. Ukita.
