- Pottery is the art of fire! Each one has a different yakimono and texture, so everything is one-of-a-kind.
- The porcelain plate will forever vividly project ukiyo-e without worrying about discoloration or mold.
- The theme is "Red Fuji", "Kanagawa Okinami Ura", "Kanbara".
I feel Japanese culture in my life.
Ukiyo-e ceramic plates that we would like you to incorporate into your daily life.
I want you to feel its splendor by decorating it at the entrance, in the living room, or in the room.
During the Edo period, it was a turning point where Japanese culture flourished.
In the Edo period, Japan exported "pottery" and "ukiyo-e" to foreign countries as Japanese style.
By the way, Ukiyo-e went abroad not as a product but as a wrapping paper for pottery.
I wanted to create a product that gives you a feeling of Japan by combining these two, and came up with this project.
Background to the project
Originally, it was supposed to be sold to overseas tourists as a product that feels Japan.
However, due to the influence of COVID-19, we have not been able to obtain sales opportunities for overseas tourists, and we are in a difficult situation.
Although this product is made for overseas tourists, the manufacturing method is requested from the Mashiko pottery pottery so that you can feel the real thing, and everyone in Japan can enjoy it. There is.
* Everything, such as texture, is one-of-a-kind, so please understand that there are differences in the products.

Introducing the maker
Hello! Thank you for visiting this page.
My name is Abe from the Japan Product Heritage Association. His address lives in Utsunomiya City, Tochigi Prefecture.
Until I retired at the age of 60, I was developing engines for domestic automobiles.
I spent 30 years collecting plastic models of airplanes. The reason is that the origin of the gasoline engine is the technology of the airplane of World War II. However, when collected, there were 100 types of Army and 100 types of Navy, and all the models that were finally sold last year were collected.
When the airplane models (unassembled) are gathered, I want to display them. Since it is unlikely that we will be able to attract customers with airplanes alone, we also collected models other than airplanes. In addition, we collected a large number of "shokugan," "camera," "car catalog," "can beer," "cup noodles," "ukiyo-e books," "stamps," "coins," and "telephone cards."
from now on
I would like to make all kinds of "Hokusai Tomitake 36 views", "Hiroshige Tokaido 53rd", "Sharaku actor picture" and so on.
Challenges and requests
Part 1 Foreign tourists do not come due to the corona whirlpool! I can't find a sales channel.
Part 2 There is no address for cooperators, supporting companies, or investors.
Part 3 There is no financial power. No specialized knowledge.
Part 4 There is a large shortage of storage space. I built a new warehouse next to my house, but there is a big shortage of space.
Therefore, we are looking for people who can cooperate. "Knowledge," "funds," "places and warehouses," "human power," "exhibits," etc.
