Seto was the first kiln in Japan to use glaze with their ceramic-ware.  For this reason, their signature glazes and painted design-work have become their kiln’s trademark and is easily recognizable to almost everyone in Japan.

An aerial view of the beautiful line-work on Seto bowls and plates.  The “umanome” design (small to large swirl designs drawn on the rim of plates) take at least 4-5 years to learn and master.  Each plate and bowl produced at Seto is hand painted with great care and with the most accurate precision.
