■北陶作品の特色 : Special Features of Hokutoh Creations


『北陶』では厳冬の日本海に潜って採った釉材「うなも釉」、 秀れた火焔操作による「油滴天目」、珠洲古陶を現代に甦せることをめざした「燻焼」、岩峰・医王山の薬石から作りだした 「釉彩医王山」などを特産としており、現在三名の作家が在籍しており、講師活動の他、自らの作品製作を行っています。


In addition to classes and lectures, Hokutoh’s three full-time artists produce locally-specialized works bearing a variety of unique characteristics. These include an “Unamo” pottery glaze made using silt gathered from the frigid Japanese ocean in winter, “oil-spot” tenmoku ceramics baked in a carefully-operated flame, and “Kunshoh,” a modern reproduction of a 12th-century pottery style called Suzu Ware that originated in Ishikawa Prefecture. Many of our pieces are created from materials sourced from Mount Io, located on the border of Ishikawa and Toyama Prefectures.
