      Shotengai-Unka-yaki-Twilight Red

      Unka-yaki, a form of pottery introduced by Koukoku Ohshimain in 1852, boasts vibrant patterns that evoke the fiery allure of burning clouds on its surface. Due to the ever-changing flames within the kiln, each piece of pottery possesses a unique and captivating beauty.Sadly, Koukoku Ohshima's technique was not passed down to his apprentices, and with his passing, this mesmerizing art form faded into obscurity.The revival of the Unka-yaki technique began in 1978, marking a turning point in its history. Kunihiko Nagamune, originally a horticulturist, was deeply enamored by Koukoku Ohshima's Unka-yaki, particularly the exquisite patterns that emerged from the dance of flames.

      In 1986, Yoshiko Momoi joined the cause, becoming a vital figure in the restoration of the Ako Unka-yaki technique.Undeterred by numerous setbacks, they embodied the unwavering spirit of Japanese craftsmanship, persistently experimenting and refining their methods. A serendipitous discovery of the clay essential for crafting Unka-yaki pottery amidst the mountains marked a pivotal moment in his journey.Finally, in 1994, Ako Unka-yaki received its official designation as a “Hyogo Prefecture Traditional Craft,” solidifying its status as a cherished artwork.
