The Tsuboshin workshop was established in the middle of the 17th century - today it focuses on producing ceramic pieces for interior spaces and lifestyles “adding accent and balance to everyday life and spaces”. They specialize in custom-made orders while expanding the potential of ceramics and analogue techniques.
After repeated experiments Yoshihisa Okudo from Sohogama founded a technique to use special clay developed in Shigaraki allowing light to permeate. The results are delicate objects - lamp shades, sculptures and also the world’s first environment-friendly illuminated ceramic washbasin.
Award-winning Junko Kuzuhara established her jewelery brand “Juno” 2014 after already being famous for her ceramic puppets. Her jewelry features especially beautiful lightness and colours like “Michelangelo-blue”: the same pigment the famous Renaissance artist used. Junko creates limited editions as well as magnificent single pieces.
