Pressure casting method

It is a manufacturing method in which mud clay ( liquid clay) is poured into a special gypsum mold under strong pressure using a machine. Shaped vessels can also be made. 

To make one vessel, we use two plaster molds that are paired. Dry gypsum is piled up, and mud is poured into them through small holes under strong pressure. After about an hour, the clay will harden, so when the mold is opened, the shape of the vessel will be completed. 

From the meticulous management of the state of the mud to the manual work of production, each one is delicate and efficient. It is an artisanal technique and manufacturing method supported by many years of experience and knowledge. 


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.

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.
