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.

岐阜県東部にある瑞浪市。人口約38,000人のこの町は、近隣の多治見市、土岐市と並び、「美濃焼」の総称で有名な磁器の産地である。瑞浪地区の磁器メーカーは、明治20年から昭和40年にかけて海外の食器ブランドの製造を担っており、その精巧な技術は世界的にも高く評価されていた。この地で白磁を手がける「深山」は、1977年、学校の教職員であった松崎捷也さんによって設立。当時、ろくろ成型が主流であった瑞浪地区の中で、ろくろでは難しかった形状の洋食器を製造するため、鋳込み成型の専門メーカーとして始まった。現在は、捷也さんの息子である英之さんが代表を務め、業務用食器の製造以外にも、専属デザイナーによるオリジナル商品の企画・開発も行っている。
