存在感のある絵柄のお皿は、1枚持っているだけでいつもの食卓をグッと魅力的に演出してくれるはず。やちむん初心者の方は、まず大きめの7寸皿を食卓の中央に据えて、少しずつ5寸皿やマカイ(ご 飯茶碗)といった小さなアイテムを揃えていくのが楽しいかも。

PROFILE

Tamura Gama is the pottery studio in Ogimi village, run by a married pair Masatoshi and Maiko Tamura. Captivated by the world of pottery, this pair moved to Okinawa and trained themselves at a master of Kitagama (a kiln for Yomitan-yaki or Yomitan Pottery). In 2010, they became independent and were expressing their sense of value with their pottery, preserving the good old tradition. They are building their own climbing kiln at their house united with the studio.

Just one of their uniquely patterned dishes with a presence should set out your dining table so much. If you are a starter with pottery, you will take pleasure in putting a big sized Nanasun-zara (8 inches dish) on the center of the table at first, then getting some small sized items like Gosun-zaras (6 inches dishes) and Makais (rice bowls) little by little.
