Kinjo Jiro
Born in Naha. Began working with ceramics at the age of 13, studying under Hamada Shoji. Later apprenticed at a kiln-equipped shop that produced ceramics typically representative of Okinawa. Went independent in 1972. Certified as a prefectural intangible cultural technology property holder for Okinawan ceramics. Recipient of the Okinawa Times Art Award, Japan Folk Art Museum Award, Kokugakai Exhibition Excellence Award, Modern Master Craftsman Exhibition Labor Minister’s Award, many others. Permanent installation at the Romanian National Folk Art Museum. Exhibited at the Japan Ceramics Masters Exhibition. The Okinawa Crafts Exhibition (sponsored by the National Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto), and the Okinawa Prefecture Designated Intangible Cultural Properties and Crafts Exhibition. Solo exhibitions at Okayama Tenmaya, Matsuya Ginza, Seibu Ikebukuro, and others. Ryukyu pottery was designated a nationally-important intangible cultural property (national treasure), the first such designation in Okinawa. Primarily focused on painting atop engravings of fish and crustaceans.

Tsuboya pottery
Okinawan pottery is the foundation for Tsuboya ware, a fusion of pottery techniques obtained through commerce with the south and Korean potters’ methods directly transmitted from Satsuma. In 1682, the Ryukyu royal government integrated the Chibana Kiln of Misato Village (now Okinawa City), the Takaraguchi Kiln of Shuri, the Wakuta Kiln of Naha, and other regional kilns into the south of Makishi Village (now Tsuboya-cho in Naha City) in order to make utensils for the local islanders. This was the start of Tsuboya ware and it continues to the present day.
Tsuboya ware is divided into two basic subtypes, ara ware (Nanban ware) and jo ware. Most ara ware, which is unglazed yakishime pottery, consists of miso pots, sake jugs, water vessels, and similar large containers. Jo ware is red clay painted white and glazed, and mainly consists of goods used daily, such as bowls, plates, and flower vases, as well as tea sets, sake vessels, and decorative articles.
