This show at the The Museum of Ceramic Art, Hyogo has 5 types of prefectural ceramics on display until the 23rd. of September. This is a link to the museum’s English site, http://www.mcart.jp/20/exhibition/hyogoyaki/20gotouchi_en.htm A cut and paste from the English site about the show,  Showcases porcelain , earthenware , and ceramic wares produced in Hyogo Prefecture. Hyogo Prefecture primarily consists of the former provinces of Settsu, Harima, Awaji, Tamba and Tajima, all of which are known for their production of pottery wares.

A group based in Shigaraki, http://www.shigarakiza.com/ with a list of ceramic folks, http://www.shigarakiza.com/artist/ I am unsure the criteria in the selection of the artists.
