Mortar | Horikoshigama

Rich texture mortars that can also be used as vessels, produced by Horikoshigama. Hoshi City, the Horikoshi District from Yamaguchi Prefecture is well-known for its history of pottery-making. Horikoshi kiln has a 130-years-long history of producing daily goods with focus on vessels. But the most popular item is mortar. The soil in the Horikoshi district is rich in iron, suitable for mortars because it becomes solid when burnt. The mortar is not only easy to use but also beautiful in its design.
