  • Porcelain underglaze painting

    Porcelain underglaze painting (saiji) is achieved by applying colored underglaze decorations to porcelain. The vessel is then coated with a transparent glaze and fired. White porcelain is used to emphasize the painted motifs.

Mainly producing porcelain. Being charmed by the colors of the rivers in Azumino, Nagano where I grew up, I mainly produce seihakuji (pale blue porcelain). I use styluses and bamboo sticks that I make myself to carve patterns to detail. The shape of the vessel is also very important to me.
