Things to know

The Seiuemon Pottery in Shiga Prefecture keeps the Shigaraki-yaki tradition of pottery alive. Shigaraki-yaki is one of the so-called Six Ancient Kilns that are said to have been instrumental in developing Japanese pottery and its appreciation of beauty more generally. The Seiuemon Pottery uses local sandy clay to produce original artworks while following traditional techniques. Its two artists are Tani Seiuemon and Tani Q who each have their own distinct styles. The Seiuemon Pottery also maintains a museum dedicated to the study of old Shigaraki styles and other ancient pottery to serve as inspiration for the artists' own work. If you are even remotely interested in the art of Japanese pottery, a visit to this pottery and a conversation with its artists will provide a rewarding cultural experience.
