What is Yamahon Pottery?Speaking of Iga, many people think of Tamba? Iga is a production site of pottery with strong fire resistance and excellent quality, but Yamahon Pottery is a workshop holding a workshop in the Iga Round column. It is one of the few workshops currently making fire pots with high fire resistance without using petalite. Mr. Tadamasa Yamamoto, the representative of the studio.

First time usage of Yamahon Ceramic Tamba Noodle (Blue Magnetic Glaze)The clay pot will become stronger by cracks entering the fire. Since cracks are gaps, work called "sealing" is necessary to prevent leakage from the cracks. It is best to make rice porridge or "boil down" flour, rice rice soup and so on.
What is sealing?There is a lot of small cracks entering the pot as penetrating (kanji). The cooked rice just enters the cracks little by little. We call this that cracks gradually fill up by this. If there is color or smell in things entering the crack, it will stick to the pot Rice porridge and wheat flour · ginger juice are said to be suitable for sealing. 【Materials for sealing】 ·water · Flour or potato starch (about 10% relative to water)
I will dissolve the flour in water. Melt with a bowl beforehand.
I will crush it firmly so that wheat flour will not remain.
Put the contents of the bowl in the pot. The eighth minute of the pot is sufficient.
Please be careful as it may bubble over when it boils if it puts a full eye.
I warmly warm up the pot with a low heat. If it boils, stop the fire and let it cool.
Please ensure that the pot is quite hot with preheating so cool it well.
Please throw away the contents and rinse it as the pot cools down.
If you take water well and dry it, filling is complete.
※ If moisture remains, sun drying is the best because it will cause mold mold.
How to wash the potAs the pot is vulnerable to sudden temperature changes Please cool down firmly after use. If you leave juice from the pot beforehand, it will cool down more quickly.
When mold and smell have stuck to the potSince the clay pot has characteristics easy to absorb moisture Odor and mold may stick. You can use it without problems if maintenance is performed firmly even in such a case. 【Molds for odor and odor removal materials】 · Tea Leaves (Appropriate amount) · Water (about 8 minutes in pot)
Wash the pot and take mold fairly.
Wipe the area exposed to fire on the backside of the pot and remove moisture.
I put tea leaves and water and put them on fire. The amount of water will be about the eighth of the pot.
Please heat the pan slowly with a low heat. When the whole pan warms up, heat it up to medium heat and warm until it boils.
If boiled at medium heat, boil it for 10 minutes with a low heat. Please cool down as soon as you have finished boiling.
Rinse thoroughly and dry. If you dry well with the sun and dry well you can take mold fairly.
How to dry and keep the potSince the clay pot has characteristics easy to absorb moisture If you perform an incorrect storage method, it may cause mold growth. I will introduce the correct way to use the pot for a long time.
After use, wash the pot with water firmly and sun it in a well-ventilated place. It will dry completely when sun dried for 2-3 days. If you want to dry early, you can warm up in a microwave for about 1 minute and it is OK even for a day's heavenly sunshine.
※ Please also read the notes carefully as the microwave oven is also NG in the pot
I will wrap it with newspaper when keeping it. If you put it in a box or wrapped in a lap, moisture accumulates and mold grows. When storing the pot, it is best to wrap it in a newspaper and keep it. The newspaper absorbs moisture from outside and prevents dust in the air from invading.
Let's keep it in a well-ventilated place such as a cupboard or a bunko. It is good to avoid under humid sink etc because moisture tends to accumulate.
