Potter’s clay of “Kase”
Unused pottery before secular change
The pottery of ASAHIYAKI is particular about “yo-hen” that changes color when fired pottery and glaze coloring. It is totally beautiful and tasteful the more you use it.
Especially the potter’s clay of ASAHIYAKI is liable to aging. Small cracks and harmonious hue show by secular change.
An unique feeling of hue gradually appears by soaking up hot water and tea, however it does not show during firing. Pottery improves with use.
It would be great if you could enjoy the secular change of pottery of Asahiyaki.
