About Hagi ware At the end of the 16th century, when Toyotomi Hideyoshi sent troops to Korea, many potters who made "Korean tea bowls" crossed the sea and came to Japan, and the daimyo of western Japan took care of them. After that, when the Toyotomi clan was destroyed and the Tokugawa administration was born after the Battle of Sekigahara and the Siege of Osaka, the Mori clan, the largest daimyo in western Japan, was transferred to Hagi. It is said that Hagi ware began when the brothers of Li Jing and Li Jing, who were held by the Mori clan at that time, opened a kiln in Hagi. The Mori family loved the tea ceremony throughout the Edo period, and continued to use potters as the Mori family's kiln. The essence of the tea ceremony is "Wabi-Sabi". The tradition is inherited in this way while being protected by the Mori family. It can be said that the simple taste of Hagi ware, where you can feel the warmth of the soil, has inherited the spirit of this "Wabi-Sabi".
