Recognized as an important intangible cultural property in both the fields of "Shino" and "Setokuro", leaving a great deal of achievement in the history of modern Japanese ceramics.
Through the "Karahinekai", we deepened exchanges with the leading figures in the Showa ceramic art world, such as Handeishi Kawakita, Kaneshige Toyo, and Kyuwa Miwa, and established a solid position.
Toyozora Arakawa, a living national treasure representing Mino, which is still very popular and highly evaluated. It is a work of Karatsu that Toyozora Arakawa, who showed a deep knowledge other than Mino pottery and had a close friendship with Koju Nishioka, a heavyweight of Karatsu, continued to produce for a lifetime.
The milky white ash glaze was applied as if it was foggy, and it was really tasteful. The lean painting emphasizes the "beauty of the margins", and the nobility of being able to watch it forever is the essence of Toyozora Arakawa's beauty.
