Rokkoyo vol.3 Tanba

vol. 3: Tanba (Hyogo prefecture)

Tanba also took over Tokoname’s techniques and was founded around the 13th century. Tanba’s techniques are similar to Shigaraki. But, they use pine trees for firewood. The pine ash makes unique patterns. Now they also use natural gas for burning. In this case, they put ash on the pottery by hand. It is different when made with pine firewood. Of course, the price is much different too.
