Kohiki

Kohiki is a type of pottery made by covering a base with a high iron content with white mud, coating it with a transparent glaze, and firing it. Unlike muji-hakeme, the entire surface, including the bottom and surrounding area, is covered with white mud. The name comes from the soft glaze on the surface that looks as if it has been blown with powder. Some of the highlights are the stains called “Amamori” caused by years of use, and the “Hima” where the base material appears in the white mud. Tea bowl, sake bottle, and sake cup are highly prized and coveted. It was fired mainly in the 15-16th century.
