Hagi Ware

ART 2019 4 minutes Episode(s): 7 Japanese
Hagi Ware was created at the end of the 16th century as a gift for the Emperor of Japan. Along with the Raku Ware and Karatsu Ware, it is one of the big three traditional earthenware products produced in Japan. Recently, the process of creating Hagi Ware has taken on a new meaning for some potters who strive to melt tradition and modern art together. Watch as the new branch of potters talk about their craft and how their work manages to delicately balance the physical and spiritual into one.

From Japan to the world. They aim to pique global interest and shine a spotlight to this wonderful, ancient artform!
