Show more images for this item.

There is a sentiment amongst the Japanese of the need to hold onto their heritage while it integrates into the international economy. Consequently, the Mingei movement was developed to revive lost Japanese crafts, many of which simply could not compete in the free market. As a part of the movement, the Wahee kiln revived Akita prefecture's Shiraiwa style cermamics, which had been refined during the 18th-19th. Today, the Wahee hand makes each peice with the utmost care and attention. They strive to create traditional pottery suited for the modern living.
