[Flow of Experience]
Time required: About 1 hour
① Gather at atelier GENYO
② Experience Explanation
Staff will explain important points and safety precautions
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask the instructor!
③ Start experience
First of all, let's decide what object you want to create.
We recommend creating ceramic pots, plates, or containers that you can use in your daily life.
Of course, you can also make other creations as you would like.
④ You can choose your favorite color from among the glazes:
Oribe glaze (green), lapis lazuli (blue), white glaze (white), and ash glaze (gray).
Since an original atelier GENYO ash glaze is used instead of ready-made glaze, your creation will give off a bold and authentic pottery color.
* Glaze coloring is applied by store staff.
⑤ Finish.
※Completion Time (drying, etc.): About 3 weeks to 2 months.
* Shipping fee charged separately. After the ceramic is complete, it will be sent to you by post (only to locations in Japan).

I want to express the beautiful scenery of Miyagi Zao’s four seasons through pottery *** At the base of the Zao mountains in Togatta Onsen hot spring town, is "atelier GENYO" and "atelier HANA✳︎HANA," two ceramic studios each operated separately by one member of a married couple.
