Potters work on vases at the Kinkozan Sobei Pottery Factory. The half-naked man in the foreground is shaping a vase on the wheel using a pallet, while the man in the back is painting a vase. This is the Awata Kiln, located at Sanjo-Awataguchi. Founded in 1633, it exported ceramic ornaments and utensils to North America and Europe as well as China and India. This may have been taken by the British photographer H. G. Ponting.
