Koishiwara ware (Koishiwara yaki) is a type of pottery produced in the Fukuoka prefecture.
It’s unique point is the patterns that develop when applied while rotating on a potter's wheel.
Koishiwara ware is very practical in daily life and long-lasting.
Bernard Leach visited Koishiwara in 1954 and he spoke very highly of their ceramics.

The origin of Koishiwara ware goes back to the year 1669, during the Edo period (1603-1868). At the World Trade Fair of 1958, held in Brussels, Koishiwara ware won the Grand Prix, and gained attention together with its catchphrase of “The Beauty of Utility".
In 1975, Koishiwara ware was the first porcelain to be designated as a traditional handicraft by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry.
