Founded about 180 years ago.
We are specialist in earthenware pottery.
We are very particular about the soil we use because we want people to feel a sense of warmth when using our cups.
The clay of Matsusuke kiln
Usually one kiln uses one or two soils, but here Matsusuke Kiln we uses 5 kinds of soils to make the best pottery .
All our products are made to order
This means that all our products are unique.
MATUSUKE Kiln director
Mr.Kato's family has been in charged for 7 generations. He is the current director.
"I want to pass on the technique and sprits of Mino ware and support young potters." said Mr.Kato
4 potters are working at MASTUSUKE Kiln.
I hope to provide support and guidance to young ceramic artists at our kiln, which will lead to the sustainment of the Mino region and leave Mino-yaki pottery healthy for generations.
