Story

For over 400 years, the Kasen family has been hand-crafting their pottery with earth from the hills of Seto, Japan. Their Kitagama kiln was established in 1670 and is the only remaining Japanese kiln from that era. The earth the family uses in their pottery is so pure it can be used directly without any purification. The craftsmanship and style of Hiroshoge Kato Kasen, the family's 12th-generation master potter, is on full display in his fabulous scalloped-edge dishes.
