"Mumyoi-yaki," Sado's pottery

"Mumyoi-yaki," Sado's pottery "Mumyoi" originally means red-colored clay containing much iron that has been dug out of Sado Gold Mine, and it is said to have once been used as a hematinic in traditional Chinese medicine. In recent years, the pottery which is made by mixing this clay with ordinary porcelain clay and baking it at a high temperature is called "Mumyoi-yaki," and has become Sado's specialty which is well-known as metalic pottery.
Mumyoi-yaki pottery is hard and strong, and the more you use it, the more lustrous the pottery becomes.
