Kusatsu-yaki Black Hohin Set by Kazuma Yamamoto
In the Kusatsu area, pottery has already been made since the 7th century. This area used to be at the bottom of the lake in ancient times. Therefore, the clay taken from this land contains a rich iron. Kusatsu-yaki is made using this local clay. This black hohin set is also made of clay containing iron and has a beautiful black color. This set includes hohin, water cooler (yuzamashi), and 2 cups.
