Iga Yukihira Pot has been newly added to the Azmaya’s Iga-ware series. While maintaining exceptional heat conduction that they are known for, an addition of a grip handle has been designed so that it can be carried with one hand. The pot itself is smaller in size compared to the commonly known hot pot (Donabe) size, so you can easily use it daily for rice porridge, soup, and many other simmered dishes in a compact kitchen set up.
Each of these pots is hand thrown one by one by skilled craftsmen. Using local clay and traditional techniques, Iga ware (伊賀焼, Iga-yaki) is one of Japan’s most highly-regarded traditional pottery styles, and is rooted 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 soil. The clay and natural glazes are local to the region that are extremely resistant to heat and react well to repeated firing. Iga clay offers an elevated level of hardness while the pebbles in the clay result in natural character and texture.
Adding a touch of warmth, this Iga Yukihira Pot is an ideal choice for serving your favourite dishes on your dining table.
Iga pottery that is considered earthenware is porous and considerably low in density compared to porcelain, meaning it will absorb liquids. Please be sure to “seal” before using the Yukihara Pot for the first time. Due to the use of coarse soil, water will seep out and will not boil unless it is sealed. *Also follow Iga ware material care instructions for further detailed information (below).
Due to the handcrafted quality of these products, slight variation in shade, gloss & size of glaze are to be expected. Its beauty is one of a kind.
