Pottery, known as Shigaraki-yaki, comes from Shigaraki Town and its surrounding area in the south and dates back to the 13th century. Originally used for larger items, the high-quality clay produced in the area proved very resilient, making it perfect for larger items like storage vessels and bowls for the home.The unique coloring, which results from firing iron in the clay, leaves a mesmerizing natural glaze that contribute to the unique coloring of TOTO's Waza Impression vessel lavatories.
