"akaco" is a series that explores the expression of persimmon glaze, which is a glaze representative of Mashiko ware.
Persimmon glaze is characterized not only by its unique color but also by its high heat retention properties due to the high iron content in the glaze.

- A mug typical of Mashiko ware -
The ``akaco mug'' is shaped like an old Mashiko ware cup with a handle attached. The inside is coated with a transparent white glaze.
If the handle is too small, it will be difficult to hold, and if it is too large, the center of gravity will be unbalanced, which will greatly affect the impression and quality of the mug.
At Doso Towada Kiln, the handles of the mugs are attached by hand by craftsmen, so each handle is slightly different in shape.
Just as people's fingers are shaped differently, so too are the shapes of the handles.

― “Persimmon glaze”, a glaze representative of Mashiko ware ―
Persimmon glaze is a special glaze that represents Mashiko ware in Mashiko.
Many people may think of the color of persimmon glaze when they think of Mashiko ware.
Mashiko Town has developed as a pottery production area since the end of the Edo period.
Later, Mr. Shoji Hamada moved to Japan, and while promoting the Mingei movement with Mr. Soetsu Yanagi and others who focused on the ``beauty of use'', it had a great influence on local potters, and began to be regarded as a ``work of art.'' Masu.
Persimmon glaze is also a glaze that was often used for utensils such as bowls, water bottles, and earthenware jars that represent the early days of Mashiko ware.
The ``akaco'' series is a series that explores the expression of persimmon glaze and vessels that fit in with modern life.

- Red powder that is the raw material for persimmon glaze -
The raw material for persimmon glaze is Ashinuma stone from the northern region of Mashiko Town. The powdered form of Ashinuma stone is called red powder and is used as a glaze. Since persimmon glaze is made entirely from natural materials, it does not contain any chemical substances.
In addition, persimmon glaze contains iron and retains heat. Mashiko red powder has long been used for roof tiles in the Tohoku region.
