The “Piece by Piece” is a restoration project. The craftsmen of the Ohbori Soma ware and Takeshi Matsunaga, who is a Matsunaga kiln’s fourth generation, started the project from strong thought.
Even the thing which has been broken lets a soul in it revive as other products newly.
Meanwhile, the rebuilding the work place in another area is advanced now.
But the were was possible to make by using the glaze from “the Toyama stone”, which was only able to collect in the area, the product is done by putting this glaze on the clay.
The name of the “Piece by Piece” has meaning of “little by little”, too.
Paying money to craftsmen from the sale of the products will help them.
The project wishes their life little by little better steady for craftsmen,
their family and local people.
