The lost pottery in ATSUMI

From the beginning of the12th century to the13 century there was a large pottery-production area at ATSUMI peninsula in Aichi prefecture.

Osamu Inayoshi, who loved old but beautiful things has researched the disappeared pottery in ATSUMI, his hometown. As the housing spread out, the old mountainous land turned to be a big city with many population. It was lucky for him to find out good clays near his atelier.
He began to pursue the beauty of Atsumi clays. The lost pottery in Atsumi will emerge again in Inayoshi's fine and brand-new style.
