About Obori Soma ware

Obori soma yaki is a generic term for potteries produced in Fukushima Prefecture, in a town called Namie. Their history stretches back to over 300 years ago in Edo Period.
Since the Eastern Japan earthquake and Tsunami in 2011, many obori soma kilns were forced to evacuate, and unfortunately, many discontinued their production.
Yet, some persevered and continue their family tradition. One of them is Takeshi Matsunaga, who is the fourth generation of Matsunaga kiln. Some of the signature styles include the "blue cracking" patterns and the double-wall structured vessels.
