Kinryu Kiln has always pursued change while preserving the traditional techniques of Arita porcelain.
We are not content with the status quo, but rather, through repeated trial and error, we are incorporating our accumulated experience and new techniques, and we are making daily efforts to keep the culture of making large ceramics, which is becoming rare, alive.
Ceramics retain their beauty over the years.
The artist continues to create soulful works of art that continue to radiate vivid colors and brilliance that transcend the ages and move the hearts of viewers of all generations.
It is with this spirit that we approach pottery making.

Four hundred years have passed since the beauty of Arita porcelain attracted people from all over the world.
European royalty and aristocrats, as well as connoisseurs from various countries, competed to collect them as a symbol of their authority.
Arita porcelain is truly a treasure of Japan.
A culture that many unknown potters have created over their lifetimes through daily effort.
Every day, I am also working with the earth, the fire, and the brush to pass on this traditional beauty to the present and make further strides into the future.

Constant progress is a major theme for me as a painter.
The skillful techniques and techniques of the Arita porcelain are a beautiful crystallization of the new challenges that have been taken on.
The "ceramic canvas" that I am currently painting is a "new Arita Porcelain" that was created based on traditional techniques in the long history of ceramics and porcelain.
I strongly hope that I will continue to devote myself to ceramic painting and that the tradition will continue into the future.
