Minami-gama is a small studio located in Dachi, a town in the eastern part of Toki City, Gifu Prefecture, which is a major production center of Mino ware. All pieces are handmade by throwing, molding, glaze mixing, painting, and firing. The pottery is unique and special with the color, texture, warmth, and appearance.

The owner of Minami-gama, Takumi Kudo, also works as an individual artist, creating works with his originality, and was awarded the title of Mino Ware Traditional Craftsman in 2005.

- and I was given little leaflets about the following potters - the names are Okada Yasushi (Hagi), Gas Kimishima, Shinich Honma and Kudo Takumi
I have asked Octagon but they could not help.

I know Gas, as he lives in the UK but I haven't seen him for a while but I am not familiar with the other 3 potters.

However this bowl isn't in the style of Hagi, nor is it wood-fired without glaze, as is the work of Shinichi Honma.

Therefore it leaves only Takumi Kudo and he decorates in this manner, so if it is by one of the 4 potters on the leaflets it will be him.

Takumi Kudo was born in 1966 and runs the Minami-gama kiln, which was started by his father.

Kudo-san was born in Dachi-cho, Toki City in Gifu prefecture, which is at the heart of Mino ceramic production.

In 1989 Takumi started his studies at the Tajimi City Ceramics Design Research Institute and in the same year began an apprenticeship with his father, Rikuo.

In 2005 Takumi was designated as being a "Mini Ware Traditional Craftsman" and soon afterwards Minami-gama shifted to its current handmade style from its original mass production system, while maintaining the same capacity as a factory instead of a studio.
