Geographically, Hizen is an old province of Japan stretching over areas of Saga and Nagasaki Prefectures in Kyushu and has been the prime producing hub for numerous exquisite Hizen ceramics, mainly including Karatsu-yaki (yaki means pottery or ware), Imari-yaki, Takeo-yaki, Arita-yaki and Hizen Yoshida (Ureshino)-yaki, for more than 400 years. While Arita-yaki seems the most globally famous among its kinds as an epitome of refined Japanese pottery, Hizen Yoshida-yaki also has their own original charm and uniqueness of which development has not been constrained by style but flourishing through times thanks to creativities of networking makers, designers, and local communities. In other words, Hizen Yoshida-yaki has been honing its skills in the shadows for many years as an entity known only to those in the know.

On this occasion, Mr. Tsuji Satoshi, ceramics artist and founder of 224 porcelain in Ureshino city, will give a talk to share his experiences and insights of various dimensions about Hizen Yoshida-yaki by tracing its origin, introducing 224 porcelain, his own ceramic studio, and its changes during COVID-19 pandemic, and unravelling challenges faced by the traditional craft industry and envisioning its future unbounded by collaboration among generations of ceramics makers, designers and their communities.
