A Japanese ceramics artist has apologized to South Korean ceramists for making false claims that he had successfully revived the technique of producing traditional Korean ceramics called Koryo celadon, local artists said Monday.

“I retract my claims that I had succeeded in reviving Koryo celadon,” Shunzei Tani, 71, from Kyoto’s Kita Ward, was quoted as saying in an apology Sunday to a group of South Korean ceramists in the city of Ichon, a city in Kyonggi Province renowned in South Korea for ceramic arts.
