KISETO

Tori Yoshino tea bowl

Since Momoyama era Tsubusa Kato' s family business is potteries. But he was not satisfied with traditional pottery. He found a new beauty of porcelain clay with pale-blue-dripping glaze.
At this exhibition he will show his KISETO ware made from new clays that he discovered lately. Ash glazed ware in Tsubusa style shows the origin of KISETO.
