Pottery is often the craft of choice for tea farmers during winter, as the nature of this season brings field work to a lull.
Take a fifteen minute drive from d:matcha Kyoto's organic tea fields in the Yubune Region of Wazuka Town to reach the Shigaraki area. The kilns in this area are considered one of the Six Ancient Kilns in Japan. While famous Shigaraki-ware includes tanuki figurines, this area has a long-standing history in local pottery traditions.
The use of Shigariki-ware in tea ceremonies was normalised after tea master Murata Juko instructed for these items to be used. The natural characteristics of Shigaraki-made teaware poignantly reflected the wabi-sabi aesthetics and principles of sado.
