Haji kiln operates ceramics at a region closely related to pottery form the ancient times – Haji, Keisen, Kaho District, Fukuoka Prefecture.

Our kiln opened in 1952, when my father Masaru invited two potters from Kyoto with an encouraged by my grandfather Nyosen, who was a flower arrangement artist.

I, the present head of the family, Shiseki returned home in 1988 after training in Seto-yaki. Time flies and it has been more than 30 years already since I started making potteries with Haji kiln.

The pottery of Haji kiln is made with traditional tools, kiln, techniques and glazes from old times. Please visit our kiln and take it in your hands and feel the soft shape, the gentle glaze, and the warm touch pottery created by the hand of potters.

Fortunately, it has been 75 years since our kiln opened. We truly appreciate everyone from bottom of our heart for your constant support. Our motto is to make “a pottery given life by using it with love”, and we will continue to make and pursue this farther on.
