  • White porcelain

    White porcelain is made from a pale clay of pulverized pottery stone coated in a transparent glaze. Porcelain from China’s Song dynasty is especially famous. Japanese production began in the early seventeenth century in Arita on the island of Kyushu. White porcelain is frequently used as a base for overglaze enamels (iro-e) and blue-and-white (sometsuke) ware.

I use the wheel for shaping, and by applying engraving and glaze, I make every effort to create works where the hakuji (white porcelain) stands out.
