Story:

In the middle of the rice field without any signs to find the address, the young ceramicist Akio Yonehara works in the studio in the backyard of his house. Akio had worked at Fumoto kiln (one of the famous ceramic companies in the area) as one of the craftsmen for many years before he started his own kiln in 2015. Akio is creating simple yet beautiful works with local soil.
