This Seto-yaki chawan (matcha bowl) features a unique shape and a bold yellow and green Ki-Seto glaze.
Seto-yaki (瀬戸焼) is a type of Japanese pottery that traditionally comes from the area around Seto town in Aichi Prefecture, Japan.The site of one of Japan’s Six Ancient Kilns, pottery has been made in Seto since at least the 13th century. During the Kamakura period, Seto wares became known for their reproductions of Song-dynasty Chinese wares such as elegant celadons and striking tenmoku chawan. Many of the glazes and styles that were developed in Seto, such as Kiseto, Seto-guro, Ao-Oribe, and Shino-Oribe, later spread to nearby Gifu prefecture, where they became incorporated into Mino-yaki.
