A series of vessels made in the area of Niigata along with seasonal dishes.The fourth is "Sasa Shinki -yaki Miyashita Kiln" in Agano City.
Many unpretentious vessels that look good on rice
The Miyashita Kiln is a daily necessity in the Sasajin area that spreads at the foot of Mt.Using the high quality clay brought by the Aga Nogawa, it makes various vessels in colorful and shapes and sizes."There were a number of kilns in this area, which is rich in raw materials," said Hisao Watanabe, a pottery writer.He studied pottery in three production areas, Yasuda ware in Niigata Prefecture, Aizuhongo ware in Fukushima Prefecture, and Kasama -yaki in Ibaraki Prefecture, and opened his kiln 25 years ago.
When I asked Watanabe, "What is the style of Miyashita kiln?"After 25 years, it is still evolving every day and challenging every day.
After 25 years, it is still evolving every day and challenging every day.In particular, the vessel made with techniques such as "burning", which is fired at high temperatures without glaze, has a different baking, and it seems that "it cannot be stopped as expected and you will want to bake again."
From the beautiful baking that the skin of the soil is directly transmitted, the flying plane with a blue line reminiscent of the water surface, and a variety of glaze that emit soft colors ... The workshop has a unique vessel and vase.I want to find one of my favorite points.The price is about 600 yen for a small dish, about 1300 yen for rice bowl, which is easy to reach.
When you pick it up, you can feel the weight of the soil, but it is not too heavy, and it is easy to fit in women's hands.A simple and warm vessel looks great with everyday rice that is used to it.By all means, the Miyashita kiln's vessel that can be used without precaution is on a daily dining table.
