Hagi ware (萩焼 Hagi-yaki) is a type of Japanese pottery most identifiable for its humble forms and use of translucent white glaze. It originated in the early 17th century with the introduction of potters brought back from Japanese invasions of Korea. The local daimyo of the time were very interested in tea ceremony and funded production of this ware. Potters mix different types of local clay. The most standard result is a pink-orange color. Wares are formed on the wheel and decorated with translucent glaze made of feldspar and ash.
