The Essence of Kyoto in Pottery

Kiyomizu-yaki, a traditional style of pottery, has deep roots in the historic city of Kyoto, Japan. Originating in the late 16th century during the Azuchi-Momoyama period, this renowned ceramic art form emerged near the Kiyomizu Temple, nestled in the eastern hills of Kyoto. Its inception was deeply intertwined with the flourishing tea culture of the time, as skilled artisans sought to create vessels that would complement the elaborate tea ceremonies conducted by Kyoto's elite. The unique clay found in the vicinity of the temple, coupled with the influence of local tea masters, nurtured the development of Kiyomizu-yaki into a distinct and highly esteemed form of pottery.

In the modern-day, Kiyomizu-yaki continues to captivate admirers worldwide with its timeless elegance and exquisite craftsmanship. While its origins lie in the tea ceremony, Kiyomizu-yaki has evolved to encompass a wide range of pottery items, including decorative pieces, tableware, and artistic sculptures. Today, numerous workshops and studios in Kyoto specialize in Kiyomizu-yaki, each contributing to the preservation and innovation of this revered art form.
