Outline of demonstration experiment / event system
【Background and purpose of event holding】
“Ceramic art” which is traditional craft of Japan, “climbing kiln” for firing the pottery is one of the kilns that have been used for a long time in Japan, but special techniques (craftsman’s intuition, skilled skills, etc.), cost And time, the constraints of environmental conditions such as land and flue gas, etc., the number of kilns which burns year by year is decreasing. Decreasing opportunities for climbing kiln firing leads to value loss of pottery art works that can be tasted only by traditional techniques, coupled with problems of technology transfer and cultural succession. Together with Mr. Saori Ota of the kiln, who was sad about this situation, ISA, Ceramics and NTT East had more experiences of tradition and culture, more understanding of ceramics and increased number of participants, years of experience of craftsmen We are planning and holding the event “tradition connecting to the future and ring of IoT” aimed at challenging data of “know-how” by intuition and intuition.
【Event Summary】
At Golden Week from April 27th to May 4th, 2019, Yakinashi prefecture Masako Yamanashi Prefecture Kaoru Masako at the climbing kiln, through the PC or smartphone, everywhere, anywhere, anywhere, anywhere, anywhere, the state of the fire climbing “climbing kiln” burning It is an event that a “virtual” experience is experienced. We are looking for 50 people who wish to bake in kiln in advance. Distribution starts from placing 50 sets of winning works selected in the lottery in “climbing kiln”. After that, we will visualize data and images such as appearance of firewood spending over 5 days, changing burning temperature, outside temperature etc. and live distribution. During the event period, we will publish the site for a limited time so that not only the pottery user, anyone can participate in the pottery virtual experience in the climbing kiln. Details will be announced at Ceramics No. 171 (released February 23), No. 172 (released on April 23 issue).

【Common significance and purpose of project members】
Inheritance of traditional techniques of craftsmen, efforts to connect pottery culture to the future. In modern times opportunities are reduced, ceramics firing by climbing kilns is a valuable experience regardless of amateurs and writers. We will integrate the latest IoT technology with that traditional technique and check with real PC or smartphone even for users who can not stand in burning even with visualization data such as real-time picture of site situations, changing firing temperature, outside temperature etc. If possible, the user gets a virtual experience with realism, and as a result, I think that it has great significance as it gains understanding and prospects for further ceramics. In addition, by aiming to contribute to the succession of traditional techniques and to convey the wonder of Japanese traditional culture by converting the traditional techniques of “experience” and “intuition” of firing technology cultivated for many years I will.

【Purpose and role of each member】

● Mutsumo climbing kiln By challenging an unprecedented new attempt of fusion of tradition and IoT, we aim to deliver the significance and value of the existence of traditional kilns to society. We hope to increase understanding through virtual experience / participation in firing by climbing kiln and contribute to efforts to inherit traditional techniques. This time we will operate (kiln fired) the firing of the climbing kiln from the preparation, from the preparation of the actual kiln placement, the management of the fire by the introduction of firewood, furthermore the kiln work in the field, with the cooperation of participants I will continue. It will be the organizer of the event. ————————————————————————————– – In the ear strung climbing kiln, pottery is baked only by natural energy using thinned timber such as red pine, cedar and cypress in Yamanashi Prefecture. The kiln is located in Yamanashi Prefecture Fujikawa Town (former Nikko Town) Hirabayashi, at an altitude of 850 m. Up to now, we burned 560 times in firewood kiln such as climbing kiln, hole kiln, Masuyu Hakkaki kiln, etc., and the work sent out to the world will be over 300,000 points. From the beginning of the opening of the kiln, we continue firewood kiln burning with thinned wood, renewable energy is zero emissions that helps conserve the forest with less environmental burden. Currently there are 8 kilns, among which the representative one is “Ikeda Masuo Happo Kii” invented by Mr. Masuo Ikeda of the artist. In 2007, it won an excellent prize of stop warming · activity contest. ————————————————————————————– – Porcelain “Ceramic art” which is traditional craft of Japan. In the aged and older age, although it is still proud of its strong popularity as a hobby and interesting culture, in recent years the ceramic art population has gradually been decreasing. It is also expected that young people including children will be interested in ceramics by doing new attempts for ceramics world such as this time. Not only introducing traditional techniques, we aim to inherit the pottery itself to the future. This time, I took charge of various roles such as announcement of the event, recruitment and management of the work, introduction of the burning work in the magazine and interviewing related people. We will publish a report article at the Ceramics No. 171 issue (February 23 issue number), 172 issue (release issue on April 23 issue), a report article at Ceramics No. 173 (June 23 issue issue). ————————————————————————————– – Ceramics was launched in 2000 with the theme of “Ceramics that I create and enjoy by myself”. We pick up the information of each season, which is conscious of Japanese events and seasons, and introduce how to make by photograph commentary in an easy-to-understand manner. We also offer information on readers participating in spots focused on interviews and professional artists active in domestic and overseas, publicity exhibitions for amateurs, ceramics class work exhibitions, and workshops. Future plus lifestyle information that satisfies hobby life derived from pottery also plus. Refine as an information magazine for enjoying expansive pottery life. ————————————————————————————– –
