Seto is the oldest ceramic center in Japan, and
is still the largest pottery-producing region
for the nation. Seto wares were the first Japanese
glazed stoneware, produced during the Kamakura
period (1185-1333). Early Seto wares imitated
Chinese Sung dynasty celadon designs in both
decoration and shape, but during the fourteenth
century Seto ware production expanded with new
techniques and refined glazes. It was also around
this time that Japanese ceramics began to be
heavily influenced by the practice of tea
drinking, spurring the development of a purely
Japanese style stoneware.
