Asahiyaki, pottery-house

Based just outside Kyoto, this family-run pottery-house has used the same ovens for centuries, baking bowls, tea sets and subtly coloured vases. De facto, it is here that the Matsubayashi family have repeated the same practice for nearly 400 years. To show off the rituals of their daily life, Asahiyaki has also recently collaborated with Danish agency OeO, producing multi-coloured teapots and mugs, which remind us how Scandinavia and the Land of the Rising Sun have long shared similar aesthetic codes.
