Flower Vase Tassha Konohamon
Kyoto, as the former capital, has been witness to the birth, confluence, and development of the varied expressions of Japanese culture. It is here, the arts of the tea ceremony has reached a level of refinement unseen on earth.
The craftsmen of Kyoto have unhesitatingly poured their knowledge and skill into the creation of a wide variety of ceramics of rich expression. At the same time, in the midst of the busy exchange between a large number of kilns, the overlapping of a number of processes has established a unique form of production.
Born in this manner, the singular ceramics of Kyoto are called Kyoto Yaki (Kyoto Ware) or Kiyomizu Yaki (Kiyomizu Ware). Along with receiving national designation as a traditional art, these ceramics continue to bring rich colour and expression to life all over Japan.
