小畑裕司 Yuji Obata
有田焼 Arita yaki
Not like typical Arita Yaki porcelain production, Yuji Obata takes his time, creates the shape, fires, and paints each product all by himself. He uses flowers, fish, and animals as motives. His favorite and his life theme is cherry blossoms. He uses a traditional and special Japanese pigment in pink for his cherry blossoms.
