Here’s Pottery  ~FROM TOKAI, MINO,SETO,TOKONAME,BANKO~

Discover pottery’s home. Tokai is a treasure house of pottery.

Pottery production in the Tokai area (which includes Mino ware, Seto ware, Tokoname ware, and Banko ware) is the largest in all of Japan. Pottery is an integral part of our lives, and at Here's Pottery, we examine the landscape of a pottery production region and how pottery culture took root and grew in this area. We exhibit works brought from workshops throughout the region and tell the story behind them.
(This is a collaborative project of the Pottery Regions Exchange and Collaboration Promotion Council. The Pottery Regions Exchange and Collaboration Promotion Council was established in 1998 and represents Tajimi City, Mizunami City, and Toki City of Gifu Prefecture, Seto City and Tokoname City of Aichi Prefecture, and Yokkaichi City of Mie Prefecture. Every year, the council participates in events throughout the country in order to promote pottery regions in the Tokai area.
