Kasama-yaki (Kasama ware)
Kasama-yaki is a type of pottery produced in Kasama City, Ibaraki Prefecture.
Kasama-yaki has a history of 250 years. Historically, making use of the stickiness and fine-grained clay, which is a local specialty, has been used to create kitchen utensils such as water jars and tea jars, as well as everyday tableware. And today, there is a free mind in the production area, the charm of Kasama-yaki is that potters who are not bound by tradition or formality can express their individuality.
Many vases, interior goods, and objects as works of art are made, and potters have inherited the tradition from the Edo period and continue to maintain the high quality to this day.
