HAND-MADE TAKATORI TEAWARE
During the Edo period, Takatori-Yaki was developed under the auspice of Kuroda clan. Also, it received advice regarding the pottery techniques from Kobori Enshu, a noble Japanese Sado artist, who picked Takatori kiln as one of seven his favorite kilns. Its philosophical guidelines focus on elegant simplicity. Its color diversity stands out within the Japanese pottery world. Red, brown, green, white: all of them are based on the beauty of Japanese nature.
What makes Takatori-Yaki special is its use of seven different kinds of color glazes. Moreover, it produces a high note as if it was porcelain when flicking one’s fingers at it. This is because Takatori-Yaki is made very thin although it has layers of glazes.
