辻 昇楽 (Shogaku TSUJI)

Location of Pottery or Atelier / Activity base :
Arita-Akae-cho, Saga

The work is impressive due to red pattern. It is a bowl named "Godofu Bachi" for a local food in Arita, "Godofu". This food is made mainly from soy milk and powdered arrowroot. And it's delightful as a person from Okayama to hear that the raw material for the red pattern is made from colcothar in Okayama. As its curved body and red pattern make its atmosphere brilliant, it will be suitable for some happy days or a present for someone around.
