Using local clay and traditional techniques, Iga ware (伊賀焼, Iga-yaki) is a style of Japanese pottery traditionally produced in Iga city of Mie prefecture, Japan. Iga ware carries a rich tradition that can be traced back to the Nara Period (710-794), featuring wild beauty actualized by the unique quality of the baked clay.
Pottery that is considered earthenware is porous and considerably low in density compared to porcelain, meaning it will absorb liquids. Therefore, before using Iga ware for the first time, please follow the care instruction in order to protect the ceramic from food stain or odor.
Paired perfectly with other Iga tableware that we offer. this Iga Pitcher Bowl will add a touch of warmth to your home.
Due to the handcrafted quality of these products, slight and individual differences in shade, gloss and size of glaze are expected. Its beauty is one of a kind.
