We talked to Aizen kiln, which is making a vessel with a unique texture that does not fit into the simple Hasamiyaki frame.

The Aizen kiln in Hasami -cho, Nagasaki Prefecture, is a familiar tableware for everyday use, "Enrich the clothing, food and shelter of all people ="GOOD LIFEIs producing a unique pottery packed with the creator's commitment to the details.
Hasami -yaki is a mechanism made by a large number of companies in a division of labor, and a pottery like Aizen kiln is mainly the main work of painting and baking vessels.
"Instead of just producing the ordered items without blurring, we want to deliver what we really want to make, and we want to deliver a vessel with a thought one by one. Ta.

The driving force of the manufacturing is the feeling of "I want to please people".

Speaking of Hasamiyaki, simple Scandinavian design is popular, but the Aizen kiln's vessel has a wide range of unique series that is not bound by the frame.
"The bronze series that can be created by sticking to the ingredients and compatibility between pottery and glaze is the bronze series where you can enjoy a vintage texture. In addition, we want you to convey the scenes that use the vessel and enjoy the meal. I was born from the thoughtUtageIt is a series. I want these vessels to enrich my life. "

"In our manufacturing, the creators themselves value the fun and fun.HIMEThe first prototype is a small pottery clay pot for cooking with a wood stove at the president's home. All the employees of the indigo kilns like camping and barbecue, so we actually made them and tried them many times, and finished in a design that can be made delicious with any dish. Outdoor cooking gear is generally made of metal because it is hard to crack, but the reason why it is made with pottery is that you want to eat something really delicious even outdoors. "
The heat storage unique to the pottery can keep the cooked rice and keep the taste of the meat, and the taste of the meat can be improved, so that the taste of the meat can be improved, so that the taste of the meat can be adjusted to the favorite baking. 。 It seems that they pursue the shapes, thicknesses, and size that are hard to crack so that they can use pottery with confidence outside, so1If you use this gear frequently, you may be addicted to the ease of use, as well as the deliciousness of the meal outside, as well as the ease of use that can be washed with detergent and does not rust.

In the Hasami ware industry, as the aging of engineers and the decrease in the number of leaders, the Aizen kiln is working on creating a system that allows younger generations to be interested.
"We are open factory, and you can always experience factory tours and painting workshops at any time. There are uniforms that remade used clothes and blonde craftsmen, so you can see them while enjoying work. I hope that more people will be involved in Hasami ware. "
A new experience that refreshes the image of traditional crafts is full of indigo kilns.
