Porcelain with a beautiful touch

手触りある磁器

“Risen-yaki” is a technique of applying patterns on porcelain using Japanese paper. Japanese paper with patterns is first applied on the surface of white porcelain and when the paper is removed the patterns will adhere to the porcelain creating beautiful patterns of lines and texture. The technique of “risen-yaki” adds a special touch to porcelain. Miyama’s range of products called “Suuun” has the motif of a sun and when it is applied on porcelain the feature of “risen-yaki” becomes prominent. You are able to feel the texture of the print when you pick up the product and this element of touch adds to appreciation of Miyama’s porcelain. Besides “Suuun”, Miyama also produces other series for example, “Sasasa” and “Kooci”. All the various designs of “risen-yaki” come in selected soft shades of colors which add to a pleasant product to be cherished.

白磁の上に貼りつけられた和紙。その和紙を素早く剥がすと、線画が美しく浮かび上がる。この技法は「里泉焼(りせんやき)」と呼ばれ、特別な手触りを生み出す。深山の「Suuun」は、太陽をモチーフとし、里泉焼の特徴を存分に引き出した磁器。底面にまで写し出された凹凸は、手に味わいを与え、磁器に触れる喜びを感じさせてくれる。深山では、この「Suuun」を始めとして、「Sasasa」や「Kooci」など、様々なシリーズを展開。柔らかな色合いとともに、手触りのある線画を楽しむことができる。
