Karatsu Ware, this traditional handicraft has been produced since the 16th century. One of the most notable features of Karatsu ware is the way it retains the feel of the clay in an uncomplicated manner, but without looking too coarse. Karatsu ware was originally created for everyday use items such as tableware, pitchers, and other household items. The style is considered a good example of the wabi-sabi aesthetic.
