Yomitan-son of the Okinawa Island central part Western.
The ground where nature and a tradition of beautiful Okinawa breathe here.
In Yomitan-son, the pots which stored Awamori from about 1600 were made.
And there is "やちむんの village" in the place called Zakimi of Yomitan-son, and やちむんが is born by the hand of potters every day.
It was a chance big that late Jiro Kinjo of the living national treasure moved a kiln to Yomitan-son from Tsuboya, Naha-shi in 1974, and the やちむんの village was born.
A lot of places holding a store next to each kiln can purchase place でやちむんを.
The ceramics cities seem to be opened several times in a year, too.

・Charm of the ascending kiln

Kind of the kiln which a burning room is made for with the ascending kiln like stairs using a slope.
I do structure climbing and right burn firewood from under battle front.
Because fire breaks out steadily towards the upper part, a color or the feel of a material of the work change in a near part and a far-off part from the place that lighted fire.
In a texture to let you feel warmth and strength of nature as for containers baked by the kiln that craftsmen continued lighting fire by turns regardless of the night and day for four days.

・It is a lunch in a cafe, sea blue of 陶眞窯!

The pottery where 陶眞窯 is performed Yomitan-son でやちむんを making earthenware of.
I continue always bringing about new things while making glaze with a traditional method, and valuing a technique peculiar to a pottery.
As for 陶眞窯, the gallery sea blue is run in a pot shop やちむん street of Naha-shi.
I display やちむんの work here and sell it and can enjoy a meal with a cafe ではやちむんの device of the juxtaposition!
A pizza and a drink, the dessert which I baked in a Shisa stone kiln.
A feeling seems to become lively still more when I have you serve やちむんに.

On the live stage of the roof, I hold the events such as Okinawa folk song or the jazz once a month.

I can experience the やちむんで making of soil to use except that I make a Shisa, a container with hand びねりや potter's wheel!
Because I have you tell me from a craftsman, the first one is reliable.

To confirm it beforehand because it is different each in the time required, and to reserve is recommendation.
The use privilege is located within one made a ceramic art experience.

・I walk the Tsuboya Street

Pot shop ware is the material called the pot shop, and is born, and develop more now; けているやちむん sequel to.
When Okinawa was still called Ryukyu in 1682, as for the opening, it is an opportunity to have gathered porcelain kilns scattered in each place in the pot shop of Naha.
"The pot shop street" the stone pavement where Ryukyu limestone was used for is refreshing is in the pot house and estate ward.
In street and the back alley, やちむんの studio and a gallery, a cafe link the eaves, and is heated just to walk; is heated.
In addition, there are pot shop ceramic ware Museum or the classic precious kiln and can touch the やちむんの history.
The scenery to leave features of traditional Okinawa such as stone wall and building of the red cement tile, ウガンジュ (拝所) for can taste the feeling that is somewhere nostalgia while making a tour of やちむん.

・I peep at work of 育陶園

育陶園 which I am particular about the subject matter to come from Okinawa, and continues making ceramic ware during 300 years.
It is the potter who ran pot shop ware from generation to generation.
A method called "the line engraving technique" that a high technique is required is performed 用 いてやちむんを making earthenware of here.
In 育陶園, I can observe the state made with a container.
Two of the free visit that the method of the visit to studio looks in the guide tour and studio with it around a pot shop and the studio a little bit for approximately ten minutes.
There are really none very much at an opportunity to see work and a studio of a ceramist.
I look at the spot of the manufacturing with eyes, and charm of the ceramic ware should be felt more by feeling it with skin.

・I experience ceramic art in 育陶園

たくさんのやちむんに is impressed to watch a studio and.
A feeling to want to experience the making of やちむん a little may come out.
In the studio of 育陶園, I can perform the ceramic art experience using the hand びねりや potter's wheel.
