A visit to the ceramic factory of Ichinokura

From the Tajimi cultural center’s Japanese volunteer classes, we made a visit to one of the ceramic ware manufacturing center at Ichinokura. They are producing almost all the household ceramic Items.

Most of the products were designed with pictures that are drawn by hand.

They explained the different steps of manufacturing of the ceramic products.

The Furnace used to bake the ceramics after molding it.

They gave each of us a small sake cup and a chopstick holder. Lovely tiny pieces!
