株式会社 深山

Mizunami City is located in the eastern part of Gifu Prefecture. The town with a population of 38,000 people is one of the most well known porcelain producing area along with the neighboring towns of Tajimi City and Toki City. From 1940s until 1950s, the porcelain manufacturers in Mizunami area played an important role as an international manufacturer of tableware and their technology was highly regarded in the world. In 1977, Miyama was established by Mr.Katsuya Matsuzaki who was a school teacher. At that time, the potter’s wheel was the preferred method of production, but it was difficult to produce western tableware using the method. Miyama was the first manufacturer to begin using the casting method in order to solve the issue. Currently, the company is being headed by Hideyuki Matsuzaki, who is the founder’s son. Miyama are producing not only tableware for commercial use but also original products for individual brands and designers.
