Tatsumi Kiln

Naganuma san was "born from fire and earth" and he throws all his energy into taiko drumming and firing his traditional wood-fired anagama and noborigama kilns, which gives his things a warm and natural variation.

Naganuma san is one of our most charismatic makers and is great fun to be around, and his wife also happens to make delicious walnut mochi. We often buy one-off pieces which are nearly always sold before they can go on the website and his one-off pieces are true one-offs. He prefers clay that will crack, droop and blister in the heat of his anagama kiln and he is happy to find this clay anywhere, driving past a building site or going for a family walk in the mountains.
