陶磁器

江戸時代中期に、藩主が地元の陶石を原料に磁器を生産させて藩の財政の助けにしようと考え、磁器の産地として知られていた現在の長崎県の肥前から陶工を連れてきたのが始まりです。

In the middle of the 18th century, the local clan head felt that it would be possible to improve clan finances by producing porcelain using a locally found kaolin. Potters experienced in the making of porcelain from the region of present-day Nagasaki Prefecture were brought to the area and this marked the beginning of porcelain making in Tobe.

大洲和紙

Ozu Paper

和紙

伊予の紙は平安時代に書かれた「延喜式(えんぎしき)」に出てきます。史実では、江戸時代中期に僧が大洲藩の紙漉(す)きの師として、技術を指導したところから藩内産業として紙作りが栄えたとあります。

While mention is made of an Iyo paper in the Engishiki, an official document on court protocol written in the Heian period (794-1185), hard facts about Ozu Washi do not exist until the 18th century. The monk, Zennoshin was responsible for teaching people how to make paper, when he came to one of the villages of the Ozu clan, and what developed into a craft industry flourished under the protection and patronage of the clan.
