Met the New Potter Gassan in Kyoto

Hello, I am Yuki, an owner of the Japanese bonsai pots online store YUKIMONO.
Last week I could meet a potter that I wanted to see. 
He is Takao Nagata and his professional name as a potter is Gassan(月山).
He was born and raised Kyoto.
He opened his kiln in Kyoto in 1990 and has been making Japanese traditional pottery called Kiyomizu-yaki. His mail work is tableware, however sometimes he makes bonsai pots with technique of Kiyomizu-yaki and create wonderful pieces.
Thank you for reading YUKIMONO blog post!
