Japanese ceramics 焼き物
So, what is it with Japanese ceramics?
Japan has an exceptionally long and successful history of ceramic production and is famous for having one of the oldest ceramic traditions in the world. Nearly every one of the 47 prefectures in Japan makes their own unique ceramic ware, from earthy clay to white porcelain, and there are several "schools" of Japanese pottery, all of which are focused on a region and the nature of the clay that is found there. All in all the story and culture of Japanese pottery is a richly-woven tale dating back many thousands of years, and there is so much fascinating history to dive into.
But remember: You-don't-need-to-know-much-if-anything-at-all-about-Japanese-ceramics-to-enjoy-using-it!
The General Store offers a great variety of Japanese ceramics, from clean earthy clay bowls to highly decorative porcelain with a playful use of color. Every crafted piece is thoughtfully hand-picked and the store prides itself in selecting precious designs that are not based on trends, continuously seeking out ceramics of enduring beauty, but at affordable prices.
