Solidify your love for Japanese pottery with traditional Mashiko ware from Tochigi Prefecture.
Japan is a nation with a long-held and highly regarded ceramic history. And the town of Mashiko, in Tochigi Prefecture, is home to one of the most beautiful and unique forms of pottery in Japan. Mashiko ware, also known as Mashiko-yaki, is a rich and earthy form of pottery used for everyday items like jars, plates, cups, and mortar bowls. But its unique form of glaze and the artistic ideologies of its early creators are indicators that Mashiko ware didn't sacrifice form for function.
