One day Kigata Banko Ceramic Workshop

About Kigato Banko Yaki technique

This craft, using a special puzzled wooden mould to make tea pots, was invented 190 years ago by a Japanese craftsman Yusetsu Mori (1808-1882). Yusetsu applied the puzzled wood mould technique to make teapots for green tea ceremonies - the technique was once used to make Japanese paper bamboo lamps. In Kigata Banko Yaki, a piece of high quality thinly pressed clay is wrapped around the wooden form, with a layer of Japanese special Kakishibu paper (柿渋紙, made from persimmon juice).

Haruka: 'As the 9th generation successor of the Kigata Banko Yaki, I strive to protect and perpetuate this special technique, and to show and publicise it to the world. In addition to the typical patterns of tea pots in Japanese style, I add creative elements. In doing so, I bring an age-old tradition to today.
