Hagi Ware

Hagi Ware

Japanese pottery Hagi Ware.
The origins of Hagi ware go back about 400 years. It was brought to Japan by potters returning from Korea. There was a decisive battle in 1600 in which the Lord Mori, who was protecting the Korean potters, was defeated, and subsequently moved his castle to Hagi. At this point, a kiln was opened in Hagi, and this was the starting point of Hagi ware. In later times, the style was changed and diversified. One of the features of Hagi ware is the feeling of softness and warmth of the soil in the finished product. It has been used mainly for tea ceremony implements, and the art has been improved and developed. Now, Hagi ware is highly valued as one of the world's greatest types of earthenware.
Another feature of Hagi ware is that it contains cracks, known as 'Kannyu', in its foundation. This gives it different properties of ventilation and water permeability to porcelain. Part of the charm of Hagi ware is the incrustation of tea into the cracks through use, resulting in subtle changes of pattern and colour. This is the reason that Hagi ware is respected, and the respect is demonstrated in ancient sayings originating from the world of tea earthenware such as, 'one Raku, two Hagi, three Karatsu', and 'The seven changes of Hagi'. Another element of the charm of Hagi ware is that it gives a feeling of amorousness combined with simplicity. Moreover, the shade will change gradually through use. Enjoy this transformation, and feel the softness and warmth in your hand.
Attention
Please be aware that some size variations or differences in colour are possible due to the manual firing process. The delivery charge is greater for some products because of the need for special damage prevention measures.
