This handmade teacup by Matsuno-san features several orange spots referred to as maple leaves or Momiji. The scattered momiji spots create a pattern called keshō, meaning makeup. These delicate cups feature a notched foot; a mark by the craftsman commonly seen on Hagi Yaki ceramics.

Handcrafted in Hagi

Perched on a quiet street overlooking a field of rice paddies, Sohei Matsuno's gallery and studio is home to an exquisite array of Hagi yaki styles. Adding a contemporary approach to this traditional form, Matsuno-san's work features glaze colours not traditionally seen in Hagi yaki. Alongside his traditional works, it is not uncommon to find deep ruby reds, bright blues and greens, and even his signature mauve glaze. We had the pleasure of meeting Matsuno-san and learning about his studio on our recent visit to Hagi. Previously his father's studio, home to six working artists, Matsuno-san now works on his own, regularly filling the large studio with students in his ceramic classes. His father's work can still be seen on display in their traditional climbing kiln alongside the studio.
