Japanese Ceramics Kasama ware originated during the middle of the Edo period (1603-1868).Initially, everyday items such as jugs and mortars were produced.
Due to Kasama's proximity to Edo (now Tokyo), various tableware eventually came to be produced in mass. The number of potters and workshops also increased, establishing Kasama's reputation as a pottery-producing region.
It is even said that "the characteristic of Kasawa ware is the absence of characteristics".
Therefore, each artisan has his or her own style. Diversity is the real appeal of Kasama ware.
