ABOUT BAIZAN KILN

They have been making use of the materials of “Tobe” to produce practical handicrafts with the concept of "use and beauty”.
Since then, Baizan Kiln has developed through trade both in Japan and overseas, especially to Southeast Asia, India, and the United States.
The warm white Kiln ware with patterns painted in deep indigo and color, and the thick, chunky shape of the ware will give you a sense of wholesome, unpretentious beauty.
