KOUN KILN of Mikawachi

 

Artisan Takamitsu Imamura runs Koun Kiln and insists in handling every step of the process by himself, with the help of his wife.   When many porcelain producers evolve into using decal for cheaper and faster production, Mikawachi artisans strictly maintain the practice of hand-painting all of the work.  The delicate brush work and impeccable coloring skills is nothing compare to the souless motif decals.  Mr. Imamura's portraiture whales are always gentle, cheerful and playful.

 

Own a piece of Mikawachi history, a piece of artisan's dedication. (Mikawachi ware is recognized as Japan Heritage).
