Japanese Craftsman vol.4 - Shinemongama

At vol.4 of Japanese Craftsman, we would like to introduce Shinemongama, a kiln of Japanese Ceramics - Arita ware. In 1972, Shinemon I (Shinichiro) started the Shinemongama kiln with the idea of making large items, which were scarce at the time. In the early days, he made dyed large pieces (two to three feet high), but gradually shifted to kiln-change pieces.

 

Recently, with the catchphrase, "Brilliance of construction, strangeness of glaze," the kiln specializes in glaze techniques that skillfully manipulate glaze, mainly in kiln-change items such as ruby-colored cinnabar and crystal glaze. Please enjoy Shinemon's unique world of Japanese Ceramics - Arita ware, which is different from the usual image of Japanese Ceramics - Arita ware where gorgeous hand-drawn pictures are dyed.
