Soryu-gama is formed by a Kyoto potter couple. The husband Soryu is the 4th generation of the family potters for Kiyomizu pottery. The wife Madoka is from the 14th generation of the Koishiwara potters family from Kyushu. The combination of Kyo-yaki Pottery (seiji glaze finish) and Koishiwara Pottery (tobi-kanna* feature) forms today’s Soryu-gama pottery style. As these two pottery styles are totally different from each other, Soryu and Madoka work daily and sit side by side at their potters wheels in order to seek for a new expression with the translucent bluish seiji glaze. Through endless attempts of refinements, they successfully merged their signature pottery styles inherited from their families. Their goal is to nurture and present a new and unique pottery style to the world.


* Tobi-kanna: a metal strip tool which is used to carefully slip off the surface of vessels bit by bit by spinning the pottery wheel in order to create the signature pattern of Koishiwara Pottery.
