Kasama yaki 笠間焼 pottery from Kasama village



- quote -
Kasama-yaki is a type of traditional pottery that originated in Kasama, Ibaraki during the Anei Period (1772-1781).
Kasama-yaki is produced from large amounts of iron, resulting in reddish-brown finished product which is then glazed with black paint. Kasama-yaki originally created mostly kitchenware products such as large pots but recently is being used to create more modern ceramic arts. Kasama Kogei no Oka, also known as Kasama Craft Hills in Ibaraki, is a great place to view kasama-yaki. The craft center also holds workshops where you can try creating your very own Kasama-yaki. Kasama Craft Hills has both exhibitions to view pottery as well as souvenir shops to purchase these traditional Ibaraki ceramics.
