Hagi ware (Hagi-yaki) is a type of traditional Japanese pottery in Yamaguchi prefecture. Hagi ware is distinguished for its earthy texture. It is due to the type of the local clay used to create Hagi ware called Kuchi-tsuchi.
Regarding tea wares, there is an old saying in Japanese that is ''One, Raku; two, Hagi; three, Karatsu.'' This old tea adage indicates the rank of tea wares preferred for tea ceremonies. It implies that tea wares with distinguishing characteristics of earthy feel and looks are most valued.
