Karatsu-yaki (唐津焼) is a type of Japanese pottery that traditionally comes from Karatsu, Saga Prefecture, Japan. This area has been a centre of pottery production since the 16th century. Karatsu ware is known for its sturdiness and simplicity and is one of the favourites of the tea ceremony, along with Raku ware and Hagi ware. Karatsu ware is produced in a variety of styles such as E-Karatsu (絵唐津) in which dark iron-based underglaze is used to paint plants, animals, and other images.
