Reiko Tsurumaki

Mr. Tsurumaki carefully creates each piece using a kick potter's wheel in the nature of Kaga.

Delicate patterns and bright colors create a fun atmosphere.

""It's an ordinary pottery, but the more you use it, the more you use it, the more it becomes familiar to your hands, and the more it becomes delicious. I hope you can experience it in your daily life.""

It is made with this in mind.

Kutani Aogama was opened in 1971 by Mr. Yoichi Hata in Nomi City, southern Ishikawa Prefecture.

More than a dozen young potters from all over the country are creating pottery in their own way.

A single potter handles everything from design to shaping on the potter's wheel, firing, and painting, so each piece is full of individuality.
