About Kohiki Karatsu style
For making Kohiri ware, potters apply a white slip over a leather hard high iron clay body. After drying, a thin layer of clear feldspar or ash glaze is applied.
Inspired by ancient Korean pottery traditions, the Kohiki style has been incorporated into Karatsu ware more recently than other styles. It is closely associated with tea, as it appealed to many warriors of the late 1500s who loved drinking green tea.
