Tsuboyayaki: The southernmost Japanese prefecture, Okinawa, was once its own kingdom for more than five hundred years (1372 - 1879). The Ryukyu Kingdom and the society and culture that developed around it was a crossroads between Southeast Asia, China, Korea, and Japan. Tsuboyayaki or Tsuboya ware is the traditional pottery technique of the Ryukyu culture, and is well-known throughout Japan. Recently, the kilns of Okinawa have been so popular that they sell their products to retailers at markets held every 3 months where buyers line up for 2-3 hours just to get in.

ARTIST DESCRIPTION: Yuuki Tomura 

 

 

"Things destroyed in the past,
thing being destroyed today,
things that may be destroyed in the future.
I want to express these impermanence of human, things,
or feelings with my ceramic works.
My desire is to put a smile on someone's face
who see my work in the distant future."
(translated from the original words by Yuuki)
