Among other types of pottery in Japan, Hagi pottery stands out for its earthy texture. It is due to the local clay type. Mishima, Daido, mitake.hagi pottery is not distinguished by its whiteness, but is distinguished by the three different types of clay that are used to make the pottery.This Saka pottery was a direct descendant of pottery creation in Japan during the Korean-Japanese War. the generations have been handed down and saka is the only oven that has reached the 13th generation as an incredible continuity from the beginning. it can have a transparent loquat where the typology of the very porous clay is seen, but it can also have a slight veil of glaze which makes it look like a medlar. Sometime during the 11th generation Hagi blank was invented, so incredible were the results after 10 12 days in the oven that it was a great discovery but this was of course in 1940. hagi stands out in ONIHAGI, the demon of Hagi when white separates from black and ash creating a unique and repeatable dualism. this Ido-style saga ceramic is one of the most representative forms of the Hagi style, the experts and great tea ceremony professionals adore this type of ceramic which has a medlar-like glaze where a very earthy clay can be glimpsed, and the elderly i monks naturally prefer this type of pottery.Miwa XI is the hardest white to find but we are lucky as Deishi Shibuya learn how make the same white as Miwa and Deishi was friends
