Takatori Ware


Takatori ware is one of the Seven Favorite Ceramic Styles of Enshu (an influential aristocrat, artist, and master of the tea ceremony during the early to mid 1600’s). The traditional craft with a history of over 400 years began when Kuroda Nagamasa (domain lord of Fukuoka from 1600 - 1623) brought Korean potter P’alsan back to Japan with him after the Battles of Bunroku and Keicho; a kiln was opened for P’alsan at the base of the Takatori mountain. The ware gained prominence as the preferred kiln of the Kuroda clan and has continued for 15 generations!
