The pottery of Yoshizawa Kiln is all handmade, it it not recommended for those who prefer neatly arranged pottery. Even if they are made as the same thing, they are all different i 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 appearance of the baked color and pattern is different for each customer. There are many fine iron, spots, glaze deposits all over, and crystallized white spots of glaze. In addition, the crack pattern "crashing" between the glaze and the substrate can be seen throughout.

<about 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 has hardened.

You can put fine patterns on the inside of the pottery taht you made with mod sauce. The size and shape of the plates differ slightly from one customer to another.
