Shigaraki is located in Koka City, Shiga Prefecture, and is recognised as playing a significant part in the long history of Japanese ceramics. It is included as one of Japan's six old kilns – being said to have a history of 1260 years. In 1976 Shigaraki-yaki (Shigaraki ware) was designated as a traditional craft in Japan.
Hechimon is a collection of Japanese ceramics by a third-generation Shigaraki-yaki maker, Marui Seito.
This versatile plate is the perfect addition to your home. It can be used for storing objects, or for serving up kitchen delights. A mixture of muted tones from deep charcoal, to grey, to rust brown appear due to the kiln firing process. As every dish is handcrafted, each is unique and will differ slightly from piece to piece.
