Tsuchiwa Gama Medium Tumbler, White With "Rou Nuki" Wax-Resist Design

The Tsuchiwa kiln was established in 1976 by Nobuo Tomehara in the city of Hagi in the Yamaguchi prefecture in Japan. Tsuchiwa Gama is known for producing "hagi-yaki", a traditional style of pottery dating back to the early 17th century.

"Hagi-yaki" is characterized by "kan-nyu", or cracking, which naturally occurs due to a difference in shrinkage between the glaze and the clay after pieces are removed from the kiln. The "kan-nyu" effect becomes more evident as the pieces are used and small traces of tea or sake seep into the cracks in the glaze, an aging process known as "shichi bake".
