  • Celadon

    Celadon (seiji) is a light blue-green pottery, usually porcelain or stoneware, produced by reduction firing a transparent glaze containing iron oxide. By restricting or eliminating the supply of oxygen to the kiln, the reduction firing process causes the iron in the glaze to turn bluish-green.

Submitting artwork mainly to the Japan Traditional Kōgei Exhibition (selected 25 times). Created tenmoku glazed pieces in the early days and started making celadon glazed pieces afterwards. Currently making Yao-zhou ware style celadon glazed pieces, which are olive green celadon ware that have been made since the Song Period in China.
