One Kiln Ceramics

One Kiln Ceramics

Situated at the far end of the island of Kyushu, Kagoshima is the southern-most large city on the main islands of Japan. Our visit to Kagoshima revealed a city teeming with artisans of all kinds. Kido-san is one of these dedicated artisans. His studio, One Kiln, is nestled in a residential neighborhood of Kagoshima. A passionate potter, Kido-san's work reflects the nature of Kagoshima Prefecture, which is abundant in natural beauty. From the ash-laded soils of Sakurajima volcano to the clay he digs in the surrounding countryside, Kido-san's handmade pottery is a testament not only to his own creativity but also to his beloved Kagoshima. We believe the colors, forms and textures of his work perfectly balance the modern and the traditional.
