The term “Setomono” is used as a generic word for all pottery. There is use of a wide variety of glazes, which impacted the development of bowls used for Japanese tea ceremonies. The clay from Seto is made of high-quality kaolin and porcelain stone, that can also serve to create colored glazes. This pottery art gained popularity with time and improved know-how.
They have redesigned the plate series “Leaf Plate” announced in 1995 with 4 shapes and 3 expressions. Round leaves can be used for large and small plates, small leaves can be used for serving small plates, and long plates with elongated leaves as a motif can be used for pickles and appetizers. Each of the three expressions uses a kiln-changing glaze, and it is an attractive product that the same glaze is baked differently.
