Tatsuji Yamanaka

Celadon and pale-blue celadon porcelain.
Charmed by the ancient pottery from the Song dynasty in China, I started to make white porcelain, pale-blue celadon porcelain and celadon porcelain. I am currently making pottery at my kiln which I built in a corner of Japan's oldest road, the "Yamanobe Road".
