Akanegama あかね窯

The deep indigo that only Akane Yamaji can produce is a special color; a color created to match the color of the Echizen-yaki clay. Her pieces stand out with their friendly modern designs and distinct feminine sensibility. It is tableware made in user-friendly designs from the perspective of someone who uses them.
