Tobe-yaki Ceramic Cup - Gradation

A traditional Japanese craft art, Tobe-Yaki pottery is known for its distinctive indigo blue patterns against a pure white porcelain base. Since the 1770's these clean, thick pieces have been made by hand in the town of Tobe, which has a flourishing porcelain industry based on modern craftsmanship. 

Young ceramists in the area now taking the tobe-yaki movement in new directions, introducing new glazing techniques like dip-dye and ombre designs, all still using the distinct features of the style: thick pieces, smooth textures, and indigo and white patterns.
