Tsubaki Tea Cup Ai Blue

Tsubaki Gama (kiln) is located in the town called Yunotsu in Shimane, Japan, which is known for the hot spring. The history of the Yunotsu pottery dates back to the Hoei Era (1704-1708) during the Edo Period when three kilns started. The kilns are located next to the Yunotsu Port where silver was traded back then. The slope found in the area was also suitable for building an ascending kiln, or noborigama. In addition, there were rich clay and quality materials for the glaze in the region. These are the reasons why the pottery business in the region was able to scale and prosper from the end of Edo Period to the Meiji Period, and became known for its everyday items including large water jars called hando.
Later, the region was influenced by Kanjiro Kawai, a Japanese ceramist and one of the leaders of the mingei (folk art) movement. Because of that influence, now Tsubaki Gama mostly uses blue glaze called gosu and the red glaze called sinsha that Kawai liked and produces easy-to-use and easy-to-store everyday items using locally available materials. The items have the characteristics of mingei: they are durable and have a certain weight. Tsubaki Gama products are meant for everyday use, but they also make your everyday life a little more special.
