Pottery for Daily Use

I made these potteries for my family as daily use.  Such potteries as sake goods, vases for flowers, bowls for side dishes or teacups make our life a little bit colorful. 


                               Tokkuri (sake bottles)and Guinomi (sake cups)

My father-in law was a man of refined tastes about Japanese art especially pottery. He gave me a warm and meaningfull advices and encouraged me about pottery works.
He  relished sake with a sake -cup and  appetizers in  bowls I made, so that I tried many times to make some sake bottles, sake cups and bowls for him.
