"Makuzu Kozan Makuzu Museum"
In the Meiji era, Makuzu-yaki, a "phantom pottery" that crossed the sea from Yokohama and fascinated the world. Makatsuyaki is a ceramic made by "Makuzu Kozan", one of the leading potters of the Meiji era. Makuzu Kozan was born in 1842 (Tenpo 13) in a family whose livelihood is the generational pottery of Kyoto Makatsugahara. "Makuzu" of "Makatsuyaki" was taken from this place name.
At the age of 29, he went to Yokohama to manufacture ceramics for export. In 1876 (Meiji 4), the Makuzu kiln was opened in Otamura, Yokohama, under Mt. Fuji (currently Minami-ku, Yokohama).
Makatsuyaki, which was exhibited at the Philadelphia World's Fair in 1876, was highly acclaimed around the world, and for more than 30 years, it received brilliant awards at World's Fairs in France, the United States, and the United Kingdom. .. Makatsuyaki was handed down from the first generation to the second and third generations, but the kiln was closed due to the devastating damage caused by the bombing of Yokohama in 1945 (Showa 20). The reconstruction by the 4th generation Kayama was vain, and the curtain on its history was closed, and it is now called a "phantom pottery".
A few minutes' walk from Yokohama Station, the Miyagawa Kozan Makuzu Museum, located in the Yokohama Portside area, has exhibited more than 130 Makuzu-yaki masterpieces that have returned home from France, the United Kingdom, and the United States in recent years.

Looking inside the vase ... the back of the bird's decorative part is dented.
The vase is said to have been made by denting or calculating the decorative parts so that they are beautifully baked.

I was healed by the gentle look at my child.
This vase seems to be a work that got a high price in a certain popular appraisal program!
"Vase with metalwork Unkai Niryu", which may be a collaboration work of Kayama and the metal engraver "Suzuki Chokichi" representing the Meiji era
How did you make it? I stared at it.
Each piece was shining, and I took the time to appreciate it. I thought that such a wonderful thing was born in Yokohama and that I live in that Yokohama.I'm kind of happy!
In addition, I was miraculously impressed by the fact that the works from overseas returned home and could be "reunited" at the museum.
