■Shinkotoyo Kiln, Isokichi Asakura

This kiln is a workshop specializing in various techniques for both the base ceramics and the decoration. In the early Taisho era, Isokichi Asakura became the first generation by founding a workshop for creating base ceramics in Komatsu. Of the next generation, Yosaku Asakura established a particular color expression that would be called “Asakura Coloring” and created a unique interpretation of the subject matter through engraved patterns on the base material. Today, Tomonari Asakura, a third generation craftsman of the kiln, is working to create memorable works for modern lifestyles by expanding further on the range of expressions inherited from his predecessors.
