Seto ware (瀬戸焼, Seto-yaki) is a type of Japanese porcelain and ceramics produced in and around the city of Seto in Aichi Prefecture, Japan.The Japanese term for it, setomono, is also used as a generic term for all pottery. Seto was the location of one of the Six Ancient Kilns of Japan (Bizen, Echizen, Seto, Shigaraki, Tamba and Tokoname).
The most distinctive feature of Seto ware is its use of a wide variety of glazes, and during the Kamakura period, Seto was the location in Japan that made use of glazes. This glazed pottery, or Ko-Seto (古瀬戸) impacted the development of bowls used for the Japanese tea ceremony. The clay available in Seto is a high-quality kaolin and porcelain stone which turns white when fired and helps produce specific colored glazes.
