RouteCTosogaoka (Founder's Hill)

Close to Tobe Ceramic Promenade is Founder's Hill.

Close to Tobe Ceramic Promenade is Founder's Hill. Built in 1942, it has several monuments to people who have made notable contributions to the history of Tobe-yaki, such as the founder Josuke Sugino*.
* A potter active in the 1700s, Sugino was one of the original creators of Tobe-yaki. He was the first to fire-bake porcelain and become self-sufficient in glazing materials.

Highlight

There stand the monuments to honor many people who helped build the foundation for the local pottery industry, including Josuke Sugino, the founder of Tobe-yaki ceramic ware. There is also the "Ceramic Wall Monument" which is embedded with a chronological arrangement of ceramic products that show the history of Tobe-yaki ceramic ware. From the hill you can enjoy a bird's-eye view of Tobe town.

RouteETobe Creative Porcelain Making Center

The Tobe Ceramic Promenade starts from the Tobe-Porcelain Traditional Industry Hall and ends here.

The Tobe Ceramic Promenade starts from the Tobe-Porcelain Traditional Industry Hall and ends here. This workshop runs three types of short courses. In the Rokuro class participants can try their hand at using an electric potter's wheel. In the Tebineri (hand-forming) class you can learn how to mold clay on a hand-operated potter's wheel, or form it using a traditional wooden spatula. In the Etsuke (painting) workshop, you can create your own designs on unglazed pottery.

Highlight

In the Rokuro and Tebineri workshops, instructors are on hand to guide you through making your own work. It takes about one month to finish the first, or biscuit, firing stage, and another two or three weeks for the final firing when you apply painting. Without painting and glazing, items appear white, and in the Etsuke workshop, you can choose a piece you like out of about 100 items of crockery to paint with Gosu*. It takes two or three weeks until the process is complete.
* Pigment used for porcelain and other ceramics, which becomes blue after firing.

Comments

"Many people from Ehime and elsewhere have visited here."
