Origin of the name of “GOSU”

From deeply astringent things to vivid things and light things like a veil of clouds.
Soekyu committed with the blue of GOSU, he creates all the five colors and sets it as “GOSU 1.0 – 5.0” original by Soekyu.
What is GOSU in the first place?
GOSU is a blue pigment that is used for porcelain such as dyeing since ancient times.
It is thought that Arita was brought from China in the early Edo period, and now it is widely used for ceramics not only in a specific production area.
Unlike other paints, GOSU is colored in unglazed condition, so that the blue will not fade.
* Dyeing = those painted with GOSU under the glaze
One and only GOSU
In Soekyu, we have been dyeing it with a technique called “Dami” which is used to paint GOSU from ancient times.
A technique of including plenty of GOSU in a large brush dedicated to a thick brush and finely painting while adjusting the amount of paint dripping with the fingertips.
Technology and tension, and above all, it is a very persistent work.
With this method, it becomes blue with depth that can be drawn deeply, and at the same time, it becomes the only pottery nothing the same.
The creator of GOSU, “Soekyu Seitosho”
For three generations in the area of Hizen Yoshida, they continued making the pottery, now they are making it with husband and wife.
Even though we continue to make potteries for many years, we still realize the appeal of porcelain such as its beauty, fun of history and deepness with skin every time we open the kiln.
Tell the story to people who use the pottery to feel this charm by using it in everyday life.
With such thoughts in mind, craftsmen of Soekyu are working to make potteries every day.
