|Saideigama Member's Site
“Saideigama is exactly what you can see from this site”, are words
often used from people who just joined our group. This atmosphere is exactly
what I wanted to show through this Web site. Saideigama's original style and tradition in pottery, cultivating a friendly and harmonious atmosphere,
is based on a modern curriculum of an overflowing essence and on an original management style. It is a
place that differs a great deal from other pottery workshops.

meaning of Saidei
Mr. Nakano's original painting technique of creating various patterns and scenes through inserting pigments of color into mud.
Unlike the traditional coloring techniques (such
as slipping), the pattern is developed by pouring one ore more color pigments (accumulated
in clay) on a vessel at once. It is said that originally, pottery is an art concerned
with how well someone can use fire and how well one can make a drawing. But
according to this technique, the desired design is produced by the clay itself.
