Suzu-yaki is a black pottery produced in the Noto Peninsula of Ishikawa Prefecture in Japan.
This video shows photos and messages received from Suzu-yaki pottery users from all over the world (Works of Shinohara Takashi)
The joy and impression that Mr. Shinohara's works bring to users seem to be the same regardless of their nationality or culture.
"Why are Mr. Shinohara's works appealing in a gentle yet longstanding way?"
To this kind of question from customers, we tell the words from Mr. Shinohara "My hands follow my mind and forming works, not thinking making utensils." to the customers, hoping it helps to find an answer.
