Japanese Tea

Hagi Muroo Kiln Yunomi

Style

Hagi Yaki originated as pottery produced at the Hagi Domain Kiln.  A pottery that has a rich history of over 400 years.  Now Hagi is an association of ceramic artisans producing beautiful hand made tea ware using traditional techniques.  Each Hagi Yaki item goes through a 14 step process, including high temperature firing which changes the colour of the pottery.

These cups are made by ceramic artist Hironobu Ogawa.  He uses traditional Hagi techniques with a new approach, by crafting the cups from Hagi red soil and adapting the traditional white glaze to give the cups a bubbling quality.  The results are said to be patterns that resemble white lava formations on red soil.
