At first it is Yamamoto of Izushi Yaki.


Creator of this way 37 years

Izushi Yaki has production center in Toyooka-shi of North Hyogo,

It is Officially designated Traditional craft products.


Characteristic is made with porcelain with white.


Firstly Izushi Yaki having been made

It was the time of the end of the Edo era.


In beginning, we seemed to only make with soil.

Then when around five years passed,

We go to ascetic practices to Arita who is famous for porcelain and take craftsman home afterwards.

And because soil called "Kakitani clay for chinaware" came to be produced in Izushi, Hyogo,

There is the history that has begun to make porcelain.


Izushi Yaki,

It is porcelain which is pure white as we saw,

About caliber who can remove wax,

Only as for the part (because glaze does not work, it is rough when we touch by hand),

When time passes, design of reddish yellow comes to come out.


It is rare for porcelain,

The feature is that it becomes tasteful so as to use if we use.


But we must know this,

There is person who is misled into thinking that tea incrustations fly and became dirty.


Izushi Yaki becoming reddish yellow

Proof that we continued using carefully.


You said that you wanted master to learn it.


Successively to Yaegashi (Yaegashi) of Iwayado Tansu,

We heard story.

Iwayado Tansu is one of the Officially designated Traditional craft products of Iwate.


We begin to be made from the middle of Edo era,

We assemble using zelkova, paulownia,

Put lacquer on the top,

The feature is that we attach metal fittings of iron.


Iwayado Tansu,

We experience major earthquake of 3.11, and building collapses and,

We were caught in tsunami.


However, Iwayado Tansu,

Of thing which wound stuck to is not broken,

Besides, safe report goes up thing contained inside.


As of that purpose,

Around Iwate,

You said that Iwayado Tansu suddenly increased sales.


In addition,

Iwayado Tansu,

What remain as popular industrial art object even now

We seem to be thinking that it may be in design.


We aimed at sum chest in the sum to fit room of tatami mat in old days,

We change figure to Western-style chest now though it is the sum to match in room of flooring.


It is Iwayado Tansu bought as bride tool of wedding ceremony in old days,

Width is thing of 90cm now,

As for what is sold when we have nothing to do with wedding

You said that it was one of the characteristics.
