What is Shigaraki Ware?
Shigaraki ware is one of the six oldest kilns in Japan, and its production area is around Shigaraki Town in Koka City, Shiga Prefecture, where Lake Biwa is located.
The clay that produces Shigaraki ware is said to be suitable for making large pieces because it is sturdy, of good quality, and can be molded easily. As a result, a wide variety of Shigaraki ware products are produced, ranging from large items such as tanuki figurines to small items such as tableware.
Shigaraki-ware earthenware pots have a strong thickness and warm colors, which are the most attractive features of Shigaraki ware. We recommend them to those who are looking for earthenware pots with a rich earthen texture that is typical of pottery. They are also well-known, so we recommend them as gifts.
It is also highly heat-resistant and can be used for a variety of dishes, so we hope you will find your favorite and use it for a long time.
