The Iwamiyaki kiln, Sekishu Shimada Gama (kiln), is located in the city of Gotsu in Shimane, Japan, surrounded by the sea and the mountain. Shimada Gama is a well-established workshop known for its mingei style large items such as water jars and stools, and owns a sizable ascending kiln (noborigama) which they fire five times a year. The workshop is run by the Shimada family with the three generations of potters, as the fifth-generation young potter recently joined the team.
Shimada Gama specialises in everyday dishware: The items are simple, casual, easy to use, and durable – they are perfect for the everyday meals. The natural colours of the glaze are vibrant yet pleasant; the dishes will bring joy to the dinner table.
The dinnerware is so versatile that you will eventually end up using it every day without even realising that.
