We use traditional methods and glazes used for Yachimun, traditional Okinawan pottery, to provide old-fashioned simplicity and liberality to dishes that will fit in with modern table settings. We are excited that the venue is to be in Ogimi, and hope that many visitors will have the chance to see our work.
