The skills for making this craft was imported into Japan from Korea in the early 1600s. Hagi ware has a fine crack of glaze called "Craze" on the surface of pottery.
Through this intrusion, we are giving a soft gloss and texture unique to pottery. The color of Hagi ware changes over time with use, as tea residuals enter the miniscule openings on its surface. Clay used for Hagi ware is coarse, and due to its texture, color of ware is unique. Since the color changes as you use, the process is called "Hagi's seven changes (Hagi no Shichibake)" This characteristic is highly appreciated by tea enthusiasts. However, if you put a colorful item such as tea or coffee into the baked Hagi ware penetrated from craze, the tableware soon became black.[How to handle Hagi ware]. 1 When using for the first time, immerse it in water overnight, and remove dust and odor of packaging material. 2 There is no glaze applied to foot of Hagi ware , the bottom of pottery containing sand is rough and may hurt the table. Use a rug or if you touch the foot (thread bottom) concerned about roughness, we recommend that you treat it so that it becomes smooth with sandpaper. 3 Hagi ware has not set as much as the porcelain between the particles of the soil and the particles. Therefore, there may be water leakage. While using it will stop naturally due to penetration of tea etc. Regarding our products, we are working hard to leak water, but if leakage should be continued, once the product is dried well, put in a rice gruel and funori, soak it for about 6 hours it will stop. 4 When dishes are used with strong foods such as acidity, oils and alcoholic beverages, they penetrate and become stains, offensive odors, stickiness, so please avoid keeping this liquid for long time. Before use, if you soak in water and let the water suck up enough, it will be difficult to suck the liquid of the dish and the greasiness. As we continue to use it, the color gradually follows the intrusion, but since this change in texture is one of the characteristics of Hagi ware, you can enjoy the secular change. 5 Please dry well before storing the dishes. If there is moisture, it may cause mold. Especially for Hagi ware, it is easy to absorb moisture, so please dry completely before storing it.
Microwave , dishwasher can be used. However, depending on the type of food, dirt may adhere to craze due to use of microwave. Due to the characteristics of Hagi ware, colors, patterns, shapes, etc. Please enjoy the slightly different charm of each facial expression.
