Japanese pottery, one of the country’s oldest art forms, dates back to the Neolithic period.
There are four main types of pottery in Japan; earthenware, unglazed stoneware, glazed pottery and porcelain. The majority of pottery made in Japan was made for utilitarian reasons, though it still manages to be quite beautiful. Pottery is an ancient art that has grown more sophisticated and refined with the perfection of porcelain ware.
New York Togei Kyoshitsu gives JETAANY members the chance to create pottery with your own hands. They were established in 1994, and bring same aesthetics taught in Japan to New York.
