Tobe ware from Ehime is made using traditional craft techniques and the handicraft of an innovative and charming artisan.
Ms Sugiura was born and raised in Niigata by her mother, who loved ceramic tableware.
"This piece is perfect for this person"..."This piece would look great with this dish"... She says, explaining that she enjoys choosing tableware based on the personality of the person or meal.
"One day, I couldn't find just the right piece, and so I decided, "Why don't I make it myself!" And with that, she went from a person who loved to cook to the world of craftsmen.
From pieces with classic patterns to colorful designs, her ceramic tableware is made to enjoy food.
