View a range of local and international ceramic artists work as part of our "Spirit of Japan" Month (April 2019). “Kama-Yaki” 窯焼き means Kiln fired. We are very lucky to have on loan a private collection of Sumida Gawa Japanese ceramics.

This distinct type of ceramic ware derived its name from the Sumida River running near the Asakusa pottery district near Tokyo. It was near the banks of this river it was first made. The Japanese word for river is gawa, hence the name Sumidagawa.

In 1924 Inuoue Ryosai III (1888-1971) moved the manufacturing site to YokohamaSumida pottery was created specifically for export between the late 1800s and the 1920s. The production continues today. It is usually heavy and covered with figures in relief. Most pieces are everyday objects such as tea pots, vases, and mugs.
