About the clay making

The gypsum mold made by the design department is floated in a liquid potter's clay called " dorosho". After a while, take it out, let it dry naturally, and remove it from the mold when the slurry had hardened. You can put fine patterns on the inside of the pottery that you made with mud sauce.

The pottery of Yoshizawa Kiln is all handmade, it is not recommended for those who prefer neatly arranged pottery. Even if they are made the same thing, they are all different in size, shape and color.

You can see fine iron dots, blue dots, unevenness, and small holes in the handmade vessels. There are individual differences on the pattern of the edges. You can feel the unevenness, pooling, and flow of the glaze on some pieces. Some of the bottoms have swirly wavy lines.

The color of the ribbon is vague, and there are some parts that are not glazed.

(Please refer the last couple pictures)

Be careful when using a metal spoon! Light colored dishes such as white and gray, may leave traces called “metal marks” when rubbed strongly with a metal spoon. This is because metal is weaker than pottery, and fine pieces of metal chipped off due to friction enter the cracks of the pottery and remain.
