Hagi ware is a traditional Japanese pottery that originated in Hagi, Yamaguchi Prefecture (山口県萩市). It is a unique ceramic art culture representing Japan and has been highly valued for its artistry for generations. Hagi ware is slowly fired at a low temperature in a climbing kiln, resulting in a soft finish that is highly absorbent. When tea or other substances are poured into a Hagi ware vessel, they permeate through the fine cracks on the surface, called kannyu (貫入), which changes the colour and creates a tasteful scenery. This transformation is called "Hagi's Seven Change(萩の七変化)", which is unique to Hagi ware and makes each piece one-of-a-kind.

The beauty of the changing scenery (state of the vessel) has become a highlight, and it has been loved by the tea masters as "Ichiraku, Nihagi, Sankaratsu"(一楽、二萩、三唐津).

Most Hagi ware is made as tea bowls, and it is popular in Japanese tea ceremonies due to its claim and tranquillity appearance. The soft touch of Hagi ware also makes it comfortable to hold. Its unique features and cultural significance make it a treasure to be appreciated and enjoyed.

All Hagi Ware products are wholly handmade. There is no identical piece offering. Irregularities in size, glaze, colour and texture may occur and reflect the artisan nature of the product and should be embraced.
