As you can see, it's really nice place.
"How much does it take for remodelling" we asked the owner Yokoi san.
(Cause we thought it takes at least 2000000yen)

Yokoi san said "I did it almost of all. It used to be a beauty parlor
and I liked its atomosphere so remodelled just little bit"

There are many ceramic wares in the shop.
(Of course Yokoi san made all of them)

And we found cool one!!

The ceramic ware of Bingata!

(Bingata is Okinawan tradittional technique of dyeing. Usually, Bingata uses for kimono, cotton or paper. I've never seen "The ceramic ware of Bingata")

As you can see, it's like a puzzle.
Yokoi san also make nemeplate.(custom made)


There is atelier inCOCOCO. so that you can make
your own ceramic ware.

This time, we made SEE SIR(Okinawan gurdian god) and TEA CUP.

Let me tell you how to make SEE SIR first.

b0164778_10534356.jpg


(This is SEE SIR, what we want to make)

Using soil, so your hands must be wet.
(If your hand are dry, SEE SIR is gonna be broken)

Knead the soil SEE SIR'sshape
(Yokoi san teach us what to do)
We spent about an hour to make it.

b0164778_10595347.jpg


After making shape, SEE SIR needs its fang, beard and toungue. Make them.
(You don't have to do it. cause it's your original one)


b0164778_1144017.jpg


When you satisfied your SEE SIR, sign your name on somewhere. then....


b0164778_1163335.jpg


Finished!

That SEE SIR will bake in Klin. And we will see it after a month.



Now this time for making tea cup with using a potter's wheel!
Yokoi san also teach us how to make it.

b0164778_20223276.jpg


(This is the potter's wheel. It reminds us "Ghost" the movie)

The same as SEE SIR, when you use the potter's wheel.your hands keep wet.

I wanna explain how to make tea cup with picture. But I really concentrated on making it so forgot taiking them・・・・sorry

 Making tea cup's spout
Rotate the potter's wheel to make tea cup's shape. Use your thumbs and spread its spout.


② Making tea cup's bottom

Keep rotating the potter's wheel and put up your thumbs towards cup's bottom


③ Standardizing cup's thickness
Now, using your middle fingers. Put them between tea cup and move your fingers slowly from bottom to spout.


④ Cutting tea cup from the potter's wheel
When you satisfied your cup's shape. Cut it from the potter's wheel.(This is the most difficult part)

AND・・・FINISHED!

(There are many cups. this time i chose "free cup" small one.)

and GET READY!



b0164778_10251227.jpg


First you have to draw something on a paper. Animal, flowaer, catoon whatever.
(didn't plan anything so we spent 30 mins)

secound Lay the paper on "Urushi" and cut it with knife.
(spent more than 30 mins. someone thought that we were crafters・・・no way)



b0164778_10295188.jpg


Third Urushi got only three colours. so if you want another one, you should use these colouful powder.
(Just scrub Urushi by your finger with that powder. change its colour.)

「Let's get started!!」

Hello everyone and how do you do?

We've been planning about "anshare project" a year.
At last it's bagun!

I don't think you know us so let me introduce ourselves.

"Anshare" means "see you tomorrow" it's not Japanese
it's dialect of Okinawa.

b0164778_1294124.jpg


(Okinawa is south island in Japan. It used to be independence country called "ryukyuu" so we got different history,culuture and launguage from Japan)

"Anshare" should use people you get along with.

What we want to do is introduce good things,people and places to you.
(Not only from Okinawa but also Japan)
And to help that you can make relatoinship with Okinawan and Japanese.

We will send you helpfull information on the net.

Let's check our blog out.

We're gonna also write that how we grow up!

Thank you for reading and looking forward to seeing you.

Anshare!
