The first personal exhibition of "Toseisha" in Fukui, which is a brand by a married couple, Naoki Izumi and Yoko Izumi who work on Echizen Pottery, is being held at Fukui Kougeisha Craft Gallery located in the center of Fukui City. Various works such as cups painted only clay, flower vases, thin dishes and vessels by fired in an underground kiln. At the center of the gallery, the hand-formed mice show the adorable looks with various poses. We interviewed Naoki Izumi at the gallery.
