Pots | Doraku

A perfect earthen pot produced by Doraku represents the long history of Japanese clay pot since the prehistoric time. Clay taken from Iga (Mie prefecture), which was the bottom of the Biwako lake 300 years ago, contains no salt and has high heat resistance and thermals. Hence Iga-yaki (ceramics made in the Iga area) has a long history in ceramic since the 8th century and it's known as one of the highly sophisticated ceramics in Japan. Although many ceramic shops and producers now create products by machine, Doraku continues to make each daily product such as pots, by hand. Produced with special glaze containing iron, this pot has much higher heat resistance and thermal compared to normal pots, thus they can be used for multiple purposes and types of food, such as hot pots, steamed vegetables, rice, etc.
