A retro glaze from Seto

My town, Seto has a long history of ceramics. There was a very popular glaze used in Seto in the beginning of Showa period (about 80 decades ago). It is an ash glaze, which has kannyu (cracking) on soft beige. It was popular for the versatile color for other colors of table wares. Many products were made with this type of glaze in Seto. The glaze gives a well-rounded ambience to products, and can be appreciated for tea wares.
