ご挨拶 / 略歴

It has been 52years since I was born at 'KAMAYA'.Looking back , I have always spent my childhood at a workshop in Kyoto.Now as I have succeeded to take YOSHIHA the Third.I also have learned the importance of the words which is 'KAMA O KAKERU', and just started the long way to achieve my task.So I have struggled to find my own beauty, but I would like to produce the pieces which you have never seen before.They should be both traditional and precious ones,too.Then I am very glad if you feel a sense of closeness of metal tools. ( vase, pots kettle etc.)Appreciating your kind support.Thank you very much.
