Quick Reference

Japanese pottery made for the tea ceremony, usually of an irregular shape and texture. It was fired at a low temperature and covered with a thick, usually dark, coloured glaze. The name derives from the Japanese word ‘enjoyment’, which was adopted as a seal by the family of potters who first made this ware, c.1580.
