Kyo-yaki is a general term for all pottery created in Kyoto. Kiyomizu-yaki originally referred to pottery made in the Gojozaka area, along the route to Kiyomizu Temple. Beginning in the Momoyama Era, artisans and techniques for pottery from all over the nation gathered in Kyoto, the capital of Japan at that time. With the growing popularity of tea ceremony many workshops formed and developed. These workshops provided refined aesthetic taste and advanced techniques for luxury and show pieces in demand by the aristocracy and masters of tea ceremony. UNRAKU-gama produces ceramics unlike any other, which are acknowledged and beloved around the world. Photo by Kostis Nikolas
