Asakura Ishokichi shinkoutouyou
/ Hiroaki Asakura and Kazuka Asakura

The studio specializes in a variety of techniques in both battering and decorating. In the early period of the Taisho Era (1912-1926), Isokichi Asakura, the first founder, opened a studio for making groundwork in Komatsu City, Ishikawa Prefecture. The second generation, Ishokichi (Yosaku), established a color expression called “Asakura Color”. He had innovated the conventional color glaze and established the world of his unique deep and tasteful color designs. In addition, the characteristics of Hanasaka pottery clay, which is easy to mold, are utilized to create a unique world view by carving excellent patterns into the base material. The current third generation, Ishokichi, has further broadened the range of expression inherited from his predecessor and is committed to creating memorable works in today’s lifestyle.
