The Fukumori family’s kiln and home is deep in the mountains of the Iga Valley, in the town of Marubashira. This family of potters has been passing down their traditional art for eight generations. They use clay sourced from the southernmost part of Lake Biwa. It is known for its high resistance to heat.
