Shigaraki Ceramic Vessel
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.
These handcrafted Japanese ceramic vessels are versatile, and can be used as tea cups, incense bowls, or small bowls. As every piece is handcrafted, each is unique and will differ slightly from piece to piece. A thin metallic glaze highlights the clays texture.
