Japanese handmade pottery from Okinawa

In the 14-16th century , many pottery and porcelain wares were brought into Ryukyu kingdom from neighboring countries such as China and South East Asia and at the same time, pottery making techniques were introduced. By the early 17th century 、these imports ceased and Korean potters were invited to Ryukyu (present-day Okinawa) from Satsuma to teach them Korean style pottery making. The underglazed decorated pottery made in this period is said to be the origins of Tsuboya pottery.

These pottery items are handmade in the Tsuboya area of Naha city in Okinawa by the studio "Ikutoen" which has been creating artistic everyday ware for over 6 generations. They are proud of producing Okinawan Arts & Crafts by blending their own glazes and clay.
