    Tamba pottery, view 08., wheel in the Ichino workshop

    Potter's wheel in the Ichino workshop at Tamba-Tachikui. This is a "Korean-style" wheel, which is operated by kicking or, usually, with a pawing action of the left foot, rather than with the wheel head stick that is customary in most traditional Japanese potteries. The "fly-wheel" is relatively small and is made of wood, so it has little weight and carries limited momentum, meaning that the wheel must be "kicked" almost constantly and that the rotation speed is slower than would be the case on a western, European-style kick wheel. One other point of interest is the fact that the Korean wheel is kicked counter-clockwise, the same as a potter would work in the west, while Japanese style wheels are rotated clockwise. The direction of rotation of a potter's wheel often will provide a clue as to whether the potter is working from a tradition that is purely Japanese or from a tradition that is influenced by the Korean potters who were brought to Japan by Hideyoshi after his Korean campai

    Tamba pottery, view 03., communal kiln

    It was common in traditional pottery villages for there to be a large communal kiln which might be fired several times a year, with each workshop in the village filling several chambers with their production. This slide and the next (ecasia000324) show the very long communal tube kiln at Tamba-Tachikui. In this slide western potters may be particularly interested in the stacked wood for the next firing, noting how finely it is split and the uniformity of the length of the wood and the careful sizing of the bundles.
