Rokkoyo vol.4 Echizen

vol. 4: Echizen (Fukui prefecture)

Echizen also took over Tokoname’s techniques and was founded around the 12th century. Echizen is not famous in Japan. They have been making regular house ware which was low quality. They did not make any artistic items like cups for tea ceremony. It is one of the reasons they are not famous in Japan. They don’t use chemical glaze, only ash glaze.
