Kyoto ware (Kyo-yaki) refers broadly to pottery made in Kyoto. In the past, when Kyoto was the capital of the country, the highest quality in all cultural products was sought. Kyoto ware was one such product. In response to demand, it continues today to change and respond in terms of design and variety.
The kaolin clay used in making Kyoto ware is imported from various areas. By thoroughly kneading the clay, air is removed and a uniform composition is achieved.
