A workshop tour where many Kutani ware craftsmen train to learn about their deep love and energy for manufacturing. Many craftsmen involved in Kutani have studied under the first and second generation Tokuda Yasokichi, and many of the former master craftsmen. I have been training in this kiln. A beautiful color technique called "Yosai" is inherited by such a famous Kutani ware family. The colors created by the first generation have been passed down for three generations. It is the energy applied to the work that supports its beauty. From the words of Mr. Yajukichi 4th, "We are born from the soil and return to the soil. We will mold the soil, which is the mother earth, and return to the soil," to each work. I have a deep feeling. In the tour program, you can experience a part of the energy while listening to Mr. Yasoyoshi's commentary in a sacred workshop that you can not usually see. * For foreign nationals: Information on the day will be in Japanese only.

Passion for the creation of the 4th Tokuda Yasokichi

Mr. Yajukichi 4th will guide you on the day of the workshop tour. From the time Mr. Yajukichi entered the workshop, his voice and pace suddenly changed, and from the lively explanations, you can feel the energeticness of the kiln, which has produced wonderful works for generations. We are born from the soil and return to the soil. The feelings you have for the work made from that soil can be touched by asking directly.

A set of works by successive Yajukichi

The 4th generation himself will explain the pottery life and works from the first Tokuda Yasokichi to the 4th generation. It is a world that can be seen only in our own gallery, such as the world of colors and works that have been studied by successive generations.
