Mashiko ware is produced in the area around the town of Mashiko in Tochigi prefecture.
The clay used in Mashiko ware is rich in silicic acid and iron with a high plasticity, making it easy to shape and highly fire-resistant.
Unlike other potteries, no extra ingredients are added to the clay; which is the secret behind Mashiko ware's thickness.
While the clay makes this pottery heavier than others and require handling with care, there is a unique and rustic practicality to its thick clay texture.
Mashiko ware's glazes are made with stone powder and scrap iron powder and the colors are laid on with dog-hair brushes. This creates a round look as well as adding depth to the colors.
