The Hakodate potter Shiraiwa Taisuke was the student of the famous Tokoname-yaki potter, Konishi Yôhei.
The young Shiraiwa has become a specialist of kyûsu teapots and firing in wood-fueled anagama kilns. He uses this technique to create decorations and effects known as “yôhen.” Since they are produced by serendipity in the kiln, exactly the same motifs cannot be produced twice. Shiraiwa’s teapots are also very light and fine.
