ABOUT CHOHO KILN
Choho Kiln is known for their skilled technique of "mori-e," a traditional technique of drawing patterns and designs with a thick paint onto a surface to give it a tactile texture and an added decorative touch. Choho Kiln developed the method of applying this method to Kutani ware figurines.
Nishi Chosaku, the founder of Choho Kiln studied the method of mori-e with his brother Taikichi back in the Taisho period. Up till that time, this method was used to decorate flat surfaces. The brothers developed the idea of applying this method to Kutani Ware figurines as Chosaku had studied the basics of form, design and color mixing as a teenager. As it turned, the mori-e technique suited Kutani figurines very well, and henceforth mori-e became a mainstream decorating technique.
Choho II learned various techniques from his predecessor, trained many apprentices, and solidified the foundation of Choho Kiln. Today, Choho is the third generation of the Choho family, and he is committed to preserving the tradition of mori-e while seeking out new possibilities for this technique.
