TRADITIONAL CRAFTS

島根県

石見焼

Iwami Ware

陶磁器

江戸時代中期に、地元の職人が、現在の山口県の陶工より製陶法を習い、石見焼の片口や徳利等の小さな製品が作られるようになりました。

About 1763, Morita Motozo who lived in the province of Iwami learned how to make pottery from a potter from present-day Yamaguchi prefecture, and he began making small items such as lipped bowls and sake flasks. Some 20 years later, it seems that much larger pieces of pottery such as water jars found their way into the area from present-day Okayama prefecture and these were also made.

石州和紙

Sekishu Paper

和紙

平安時代に書かれた「延喜式(えんぎしき)」には、石州の名が登場しています。

While mention is made of Sekishu in the Engishiki, a Heian period (794-1185) document on court protocol, a more direct reference to paper is made in the Kamisuki Chohoki, a ""A Manual of Papermaking"" published in 1798. It says that when a Kakinomotono Hitomaro went to take up the post of protector in the province of Iwami (Shimane prefecture), he taught the people there how to make paper.

江戸時代後期、島根県仁多町の大工が広島の職人が作ったそろばんを手本に、この地方で採れるカシ、ウメ、ススタケを材料として見事なそろばんを作りました。

出雲石燈ろう

Izumo Stone Lanterns

石工品

出雲石燈ろうは、地元で採れる火山灰が固まって出来た砂岩を原石として、古い時代から作られていました。

Izumo Ishidoro have been made for many hundreds of years from a local sandstone that formed from volcanic ash. During the Edo period (1600-1868) Matsudaira Naomasa, the local lord, recognized the value of this craft and placed the stone under a monopoly. The stone was then also used for architectural purposes. Ever since the end of the 19th century, the pieces of stonework for gardens and home have been seen as stone art and are well-known throughout Japan.
