We want to tell about state at that time.


At first to Yukio Mori of Otani Yaki,

We had you talk.


Yukio Mori of Otani Yaki

Country appoints Otani Yaki in September, 2003,

It is production center that became Officially designated Traditional craft products.


Doing exhibition in Aoyama square

You said that it was the second at this time.


There is Otani Yaki from accessory to big game,

Indigo dye vat to put indigo plant said to be Japan blue in is famous.


Using big potter's wheel said to be * potter's wheel and shin potter's wheel,

Mori is making big game now.


The mere present among six potteries of Otani Yaki,

What make big game

You said that it was only kiln of Mori and another one house.


In addition, not only big shot uses as bottle, but also,

We upset and put board of glass on flat part,

There seems to be visitor employing as table.


We heard story from Hiroki Mori of Otani Yaki successively.


Hiroki Mori of Otani Yaki

Hiroki Mori does not have relationship with Yukio Mori who had firstly you talk,

There seem to be many people of surname called "forest" in place where Mori live in.


Mori is successor of Otani Yaki which took qualification of Master of Traditional Crafts this year.


When we are asked whether it did not have hesitation and trouble to become successor,

You said that there was not particularly.


Because Otani Yaki was imminent from the small time,

It might not have sense of incongruity to stay in the world of ceramic ware.


By kiln of Mori,

We seem to make thing with many breaking balls in Otani Yaki.


It is made with board and does jewelry, the making of string, potter's wheel,

Mori makes thing of potter's wheel well in that.

For example, think about time to spend,

We make earthenware teapot and teapots which lack of water of mouth has good.


One that the feature of it is that there are many products which invention not to understand only by having a look was loaded with.


Desire of Mori doing manufacturing that third party is pleased with.

For example, we buy teapot which we liked and bring in house,

If when we invited customer, we use teapot in front,

The teapot is praised, and thing which buyer becomes glad of.


As Mori demonstrates all the time during exhibition period,

You should hear story directly.


We heard story from Okada and Isomura of Seto Sometsuke Yaki next.


The left is Isomura. The center is Okada.

As for Okada and Isomura in the fourth generation (Isomura hands over dai to nephew native now nephew native the fifth generation),

It is successor of kiln having been continued since the Edo era.


Seto Sometsuke Yaki has two of thing of porcelain and thing of earthenware,

When Okada uses thing of earthenware well,

You said.


In addition, Seto Sometsuke Yaki is division of labor system.

All two of them only have qualification of Master of Traditional Crafts as master of painting,

We seem to be able to carry out all activities from potter's wheel basically.


Successor of Seto Sometsuke Yaki,

With the second being coming out now

People coming to learn as writer choice from other prefectures seem to increase,

Still technique of Seto Sometsuke Yaki,

We seem to think that we may leave in history.


Finally when we hear aim in the future,

Isomura bringing up person,

You said that Okada wanted to tell pleasure of manufacturing of Seto Sometsuke Yaki to many people.


We had you talk this time,
