Naoki Kojima | Korean Karatsu
Korean Karatsu is a technique used by potters who came to Karatsu from the Korean Peninsula, and it came to be known as ``Korean Karatsu.'' Its characteristic feature is that it is a combination of black candy glaze (ferrous black glaze) and straw ash glaze (white cloudy glaze), and the beautiful contrast between black and white is attractive, as well as the ``bleeding'' and boundaries where they blend together. The subtle scenery of blue and yellow that is created is also one of the highlights. The more you use it, the more flavorful the color becomes.

 

Naoki Kojima | Madara Karatsu
We use the rare clay that our ancestors used about 400 years ago, the clay from Kitahata Hieda, the birthplace of Karatsu ware. Madara Karatsu is characterized by a straw ash glaze (white cloudy glaze) applied to the sandy, coarse soil, which is characterized by mottled spots, and its overall white and soft skin is attractive. When you pour sake into it, it looks beautiful on the outside, and the more you use it, the more flavorful the color becomes. One of the highlights is the scraped marks on the high ground that stand out, giving it a unique earthy texture.

 

Naoki Kojima | Madara Karatsus Kawakujira
Like Korean Karatsu, we use the rare clay that our ancestors used about 400 years ago, the clay from the old Imari kiln, Fujinokawachi. A distinctive feature of Kawakujira is the black rim around the mouth rim. The origin of ``Kawakujira'' is that the black edge of the mouth rim is likened to the skin of a whale (the back), and the white of the body of the vessel is likened to the body (belly) of a whale. The black candy glaze on the rim of the mouth gently flows, resembling Korean Karatsu, which is one of the highlights. The more you use it, the more flavorful the color becomes.
