KEIGO KAMIDE / The 6th generation of Kutani Choemon Kiln
Keigo Kamide was born in Ishikawa Prefecture in 1981 and graduated from Tokyo University of the Arts in 2006 with a major in oil painting.
Since the same year, he has been the successor of the Choemon Kiln, and has been involved in many projects, artworks, and designing together with the artisans.
In 2013, he established a limited liability company, Kamide Shigei, and began to engage in full-scale management of the kiln.
He aims to create universal and fresh expressions based on the history of porcelain, which began in the Orient, and to pass on Kutani ware to the present with flexible ideas that are not limited by tradition or boundaries.
One of his representative works is “FUEFUKI". It is very popular in Japan because of its traditional patterns arranged in a unique way.
He has collaborated with a Spanish designer in the past, and has also produced works using porcelain as a material on his own, actively holding solo exhibitions. He continues to create with the motto, “To carry on a tradition means to be creative and inventive one generation at a time.”
The overpainting is made with paints blended by experienced craftsman.
Each item is handwritten with great care.

The delicate and beautiful floral patterns make the table bright and lovely.
