  • Hagi ware

    Hagi ware is a type of pottery predominantly made around the cities of Hagi, Nagato, and Yamaguchi in Yamaguchi prefecture. Vessels are made with Daido clay, Mitake clay, and Mishima clay. The resulting stoneware is rarely decorated with motifs, as the texture and qualities of the clay are key points of visual interest that appeal to tea ceremony practitioners.
