Takatori Yaki ceramics were first created in one of the seven ovens elaborated by Enshû KOBORI in 1630.
Takatori Yaki’s aesthetic lays on the unique diversity of colours on the japanese ceramic pieces : different shades of blue, brown, green, and any colour resulting from natural ellements of japanese nature. Ceramic’s shapes are also based on the observation of nature.
Their realization follows a very strict code, as the use of wood fire to fire the artworks for example.
Takatori Yaki tea instruments by Hekizan ONIMARU are part of Zen Temple’s collections in Japan, includng thoose of Ginkaku-Ji and Daitoku-ji temples in Kyoto.
