   What is Hagi yaki?

   Hagi yaki pottery originated in 1604 and has been used in tea ceremony
   ever since. 
 In recent years however, high-quality arts pieces and daily
   use pieces are also being produced. 

   A special feature of Hagi yaki is the soft and pure texture of the pottery.
   Hagi yaki is porous and with use, tea will seep into the crazing of the
   glaze,  gradually altering the color of the piece. This phenomenon is

  called the  ‘Seven Disguises’ of Hagi yaki pottery.
