"Wind Suikin" It is a rare handmade gem that reproduces the sound of Suikinkutsu, which is said to be a phantom sound, with the wind so that you can enjoy the sound of Suikinkutsu indoors at any time. It is a product created with "soil", "sound", and "silhouette of light". Shigaraki pottery resonates with the sound produced by the wind (an electric motor rotates parts to make a sound). The silhouette illuminated by the light shimmers and emerges like a heat haze.
A suikinkutsu is a type of Japanese garden ornament and music device. Water drips at the top onto a small pool, creating a pleasant splashing sound that rings inside of the pool similar to a bell or Japanese zither(琴koto).
Shigaraki ware is a pottery made in Shigaraki Town, Koka City, Shiga Prefecture. It is one of the six ancient kilns in Japan and is said to have a long history of more than 1200 years.
Shigaraki ware was designated as a traditional craft by the country in 1976.
It is a ceramic Shigaraki ware handed down untill today that is supported by a long history, culture and through traditional techniques.
One of the features, the surface of the vessel is rough and contains many fine stone grains. Along with the prosperity of the tea ceremony, it has been prized as a teaware.
Technology development corresponding to the demand was performed from the ease of processing, while leaving the unique “Wabi” and “Sabi” of Shigaraki ware, and pottery rooted in life has been made until today.
