About Seiryūgama | 青龍窯について

Seiryūgama kiln, today run by Ryūhei Niwa and his daughter Mayumi Niwa, has for five generations crafted unique and functional ceramic works deeply rooted in regional materials and local craft traditions. They still produce their clay by themselves from iron-rich local soil and also make use of their own glaze which they call 残雪 Zansetsu, ‘remaining snow’. A reference to the white winter landscape of Yamagata or perhaps a hint at early spring, arriving when the snow little by little begins to disappear?
