SEIUEMON POTTERY

“Seiuemon pottery” established by Seiuemon Tani (the first) in the Edo Period last years.
In 1970, the present hole kiln was made Nagano, Shigaraki-cho by the late head of the family and contemporary Seiuemon Tani.
We made a hole kiln in 1982. that based on research from a medieval old kiln.

A library is being opened to the public, to tell Old pottery’s charm.
