Message

I make mainly Shisa, that I learned when I studied Tsuboya-yaki. Each piece is carefully made, by twisting the clay with my hand. Each Shisa has a different expression and movement. Among the Shisas (guardian deities) that are baked four times a year, are little incense burners that you can keep by your side.
