Description

Karatsu is a style of high-fired pottery which originated in Japan's Kyushu region in the 15th and 16th century.  It is denoted by iron brushed images under a translucent glaze - "pictures" called é in Japanese.  With the introduction and proliferation of porcelain in 17th century in the same area, karatsu suffered a long decline but has recently undergone a revival among pottery enthusiasts who appreciate its warmth and simplicity.

Wada Hiroaki helps keep the tradition alive with the introduction of these charming é garatsu green tea cups.  They are wood fired at ┼îizumi-gama and enrobed with all the rustic charm of Karatsu wares of old.  Zen circles, or enso, are rendered in iron brushwork on the face.
