Characteristics of Utsuwa The characteristics of Yumachi kiln are the rustic and simple shapes created using locally produced clay and glaze, and the deep and vivid colors of yellow glaze, sea urchin glaze, straw glaze, green glaze, etc. The pottery of Yumachi kiln, which is easy to use and fits comfortably in life, has been carefully inherited from the "spirit of creation" and "ceramics" learned from Mr. Kanjiro Kawai, Mr. Shoji Hamada, and Mr. Bernard Leach who once visited the kiln. It delivers rich moisture to the user's life.
Mr. Bernard Leach directly taught us the unique patterns of "slipware" drawn with glazing clay, the shape of the cup handle (handle) with "easiness to hold" and "beauty", and the galena glaze of England. The warm style of Fujina ware traditional "yellow glaze" attracts young generations with its cuteness like Northern European and British pottery, and the works born in the folk art movement have been renewed over time. It creates charm.

Yumachi Kiln was opened in 1926. In the early Showa period, the predecessor, Takashi Fukuma, was deeply impressed by the Mingei Movement, and began to work on western tableware as well. Currently, the 3rd generation owner, Mr. Ryoji Fukuma, his son Yosuke, and his family are bringing the tradition of Fujina ware to life in a new era. Fukuma's warm and unpretentious personality can be felt in his works, and he is loved by many people across generations.
