Akazuware Oribe sencha teaware set

¥38,500
This is an Oribe sencha teaware set made by Bakusen, a potter of Akazu ware.

In many of Japan's ceramic production areas, sencha teaware sets are no longer made, and there are fewer opportunities to see sencha teaware sets. This teaware set is thought to have been made more than ten years ago.

It features a milky white glaze with green glaze mottling and iron glaze vertical stripes. The green glaze is glossy and has a very beautiful color. In recent years, due to the decline in ceramic production, glaze manufacturers have been making fewer types of glazes. It is rare to come across such a beautiful green glaze.

The shape of the tea set made by Bakusen is beautiful, and you can see the high level of pottery wheel molding technique. The lines made during pottery wheel molding fit comfortably in the hand, making it a comfortable sencha teaware set.

Originally made for brewing green tea, it can also be used for Chinese tea and Taiwanese tea. It is recommended for brewing Chinese green tea such as Longjing tea, as well as rock tea and Pu'er tea.

<Seto ware and Akazu ware>

The Seto region of Aichi Prefecture is an ideal place for making pottery, as it has high-quality fire-resistant white clay. The origin of Seto ware can be found in Sanage kilns, which produced sueki ware from the early 5th century around Seto City.

In the early 9th century, Sanage kilns began producing ash-glazed pottery, which was glazed with glaze made from plant ashes, and Seto kilns were born in the late 10th century.

At the end of the 13th century, iron glaze was developed, and the area developed into the only place in Japan where glazed pottery was produced. At that time, Seto pottery was distributed throughout Japan.

In the late 16th century, the main production area of ​​pottery moved from Seto to Mino, but in the 17th century, the Edo Shogunate called potters back to Seto. At that time, the Akatsu area, where potters moved, mainly produced tea utensils. Today, pottery produced in this area is called Akazu ware.

There are seven traditional glazes for Akazu ware: ash glaze, iron glaze, old seto, yellow seto, Shino, Ofuke, and Oribe.
