【Yamaguchi Souvenirs】 We have new hagi-yaki earthenware from Tsukasa Kaneko (November)

Tsukasa Kaneko’s earthenware has arrived in the Hagi-yaki Gallery!

We’ve received a variety of items to incorporate into your everyday life, including pots with lids, bowls, chopstick rests, and mushroom-shaped earthenware pieces. Hold each piece for yourself and find your perfect fit. *All photographs were taken in Tsukasa Kaneko’s Studio.

The colors of autumn. Try the maple leaf-shaped chopstick rests.

Tsukasa Kaneko’s pieces will brighten up your everyday life with color. For autumn, we recommend her maple leaf-shaped chopstick rests. If you look carefully, you’ll see that each one has a different color, just like real maple leaves. Come see all of the products in the Hagi-yaki Gallery on Otani Sanso’s second floor, and take a look at their size and how they feel in your hands.

Enjoy Tsukasa Kaneko’s hagi-yaki pottery pieces everyday.
