TANBA YAKI (丹波焼き)-Ceramics of Hyogo Prefecture

CHINDAI GAMA (鎮台窯)


Chindai-gama mini flower vase


Tanba yaki is made in Hyogo prefecture.  It is also translated as Tambayaki.  You can read a little more about Tanba yaki  at http://www.2000cranes.com/index.html.




This was made at Tanman-gama



You can check out the Tanba Yaki kilns map at http://www.tanbayaki.com/t_map_main.html.  It helps to read some Japanese.


Right hand mark is Tanba-yaki, the round mark is the MARK for Sugihara Shouji

Tanba-yaki Maruhachi (丸八窯 ) Kiln MARK
                                                  ****************

I enjoyed a lovely visit to the Tanba Pottery area in Hyogo Prefecture in early March.  We visited the Museum of Ceramic Art, Hyogo with a display of the works of Ogata Shuhei.  We also visited Chindai Kiln, Noborigama Kiln and also visited the Chiyoichi store and Gallery.

Here are some of my pieces by Shimizu Chiyoichi with his mark. I had looked high and low for quite a long time to find the origin of this mark.  We just happened by the gallery on our visit to Tanba pottery kilns. I was thrilled to not only put the mark with my pieces, but also to meet Mr. Shimizu.

 NOBORI GAMA (のぼり窯 )    


                                                                                                    

This is one of my favorite vases to put small flowers in. It looks great with a few flowers poking out of the cracks. So "Wabi-Sabi".
