TRADITIONAL CRAFTS

福島県

大堀相馬焼

Obori Soma Ware

陶磁器

大堀相馬焼は江戸時代初期(1690年)に作り始められたと言われています。当時その地方を治めていた相馬藩が、焼き物作りを保護、育成したため、江戸時代末期には100余りの窯元が並ぶ、東北地方で一番大きな産地になりました。

Indications are that the origins of Obori Soma Yaki go back to toward the end of the 17th century.

会津本郷焼

Aizu Hongo Ware

陶磁器

戦国時代に、会津若松の黒川城(若松城)の屋根に使う瓦を焼いたことから、焼き物作りが始まったと言われています。江戸時代の初期には、会津藩の藩主が、焼き物作りを保護、育成したため、会津本郷焼は、会津藩の御用窯として栄えました。その後、一般の人々のための暮らしの器の製造も始まりました。

It seems that the making of pottery started here during the Sengoku period (1428-1573), when tiles to roof a castle in Aizuwakamatsu were being made. Then, during the early years of the Edo period (1600-1868) Hoshina Masayuki, who led the Aizu clan, saw a need to patronize and further the making of pottery, and the production of what became Aizu Hongo Yaki ware flourished under the supervision of the clan. This subsequently led to the making of everyday pieces of pottery for use by people at large. Production of ceramics here suffered badly due to fighting just prior to the Meiji Restoration in 1868 and as a result of a devastating fire in the Taisho period (1912-1926). The industry recovered, however, and is still thriving today. It has the distinction of being the oldest area where white porcelain is produced in the whole of northeastern Japan.

会津塗

Aizu Lacquer Ware

漆器

室町時代、この地方で力のあった一族が、漆の木を植えることを奨励したのが始まりです。

It was the planting of lacquer trees promoted by a powerful local family during the Muromachi period (1392-1573) that led to the making of Aizu Nuri. Then, when Gamo Ujisato who hailed from present-day Shiga Prefecture arrived to head the Aizu clan in the Momoyama period (1573-1600), he brought skilled lacquerers to this northern region from Shiga. Their skills were disseminated and as a result of fostering the development of techniques in crafts using lacquer, Aizu soon became a production center for all kinds of lacquer ware.

奥会津編み組細工

Okuaizu Basketry

木工品・竹工品

福島県大沼郡三島町の荒屋敷遺跡において、縄や籠の編み組等の断片が発掘されており、縄文時代より編み組の技術・技法が存在したことが明らかとなっています。

Fragments of simple basketry and rope were discovered at the Arayashiki archeological dig in the town of Mishima, Ohnuma county in Fukushima Prefecture, proving that the skills and techniques of weaving and twisting ropes existed in the area as far back as the Jomon period, which covers the period of Japanese history from about 10,000 B.C. to 300 B.C. Then, in one ancient local chronicle about farming, reference is made of the fact that baskets were being made from vegetable and plant material in the Aizu region.
