Ceramics challenge! Home to the pottery studios once commissioned by the Kuroda clan!

Located in Asakura-gun, Fukuoka Prefecture, the village of Toho is known for producing takatori and Koishiwara ware ceramics. These are two of the most famous types of pottery to come out of Fukuoka. The area is known as ceramics village and is home to around 50 kilns! For this report, we paid a visit to Toho and participated in a Koishiwara ceramics workshop!

Koishiwara Ceramics and Culture Workshop
We had the chance to try making a few ceramic pieces at the Hayakawa Kamamoto (pottery studio) in Sarayama, an area which is sometimes referred to as the birthplace of Koishiwara ware. One of the most recognizable features of this style of pottery is the regular, comb-like patterns, and brush marks, which are created using the edge of a blade or hand plane.
