Project Description

The history of Aganoyaki dates back to 1602. It is said that a big feature of its roots is in the “cha sue” or tea pot used in tea ceremonies because the pottery was born from the encounter between the Korean pottery of Ri and Sankai and the first lord of the Buzen Kokura-han (clan), Hosokawa Tadaoki, whose teacher Sen no Rikyu laid the foundation for the tea ceremony. Also, there is pride and tradition because since the the beginning of the ceramics studio, special pieces have been made for the lords to use. Now also, the quality of the ceramics is backed by 400 years of history, with a fineness you can feel, and magnificent pieces continue to be produced one after another.
