CERAMICS
Kotobuki Trading's ceramics are produced in several different regions of Japan: Mino, Seto, Yokkaichi, Mashiko, Soma, Tokoname, Shigaraki, and Iga. Each area is represented by the traditions and innovations of select Japanese kilns, using raw materials, glazes, shapes and production methods which differ subtly and are often unique to these regions. Intertwined with Japan’s history and culture, these ceramics are produced by skilled craftsmen, many of whom have obtained their expertise and technique through years of training.

A good portion of the production processes are still done carefully by hand in order to ensure the highest quality and sensitivity to design. Technology has also allowed modern machinery and computers to contribute by increasing efficiency and adding new dimensions to finished products, thus, integrating the best of classic and modern craftsmanship.

Through over 40 years of networking with many of the kilns and frequent purchasing trips to Japan, Kotobuki Trading is able to offer an extensive selection of Japanese ceramics. We sincerely hope that our collection will provide you with a unique Japanese style that values tradition, yet at the same time, often initiates future trends.
