Kyo-yaki (ware) from Kyoto, aburatsubo, tiny (size: h. 5 m-6.2 cm, 1.9"-2.4") jars, good for flower.

The name, Kyo-yaki which can be translated as Kyoto Pottery Wares, in general, refers to all or any pottery and porcelain products produced in Kyoto. Kyo-yaki is also known as Kiyomizu-yaki. Although Kyo-yaki is known for its beautiful pottery used by the upper class society for the tea ceremony during the Edo-era, the making of the porcelain was not started until much later. It was around 1804-1818 when the first porcelain ware was produced by Okuda Eisen & other potters. Kyo-yaki porcelain is appreciated for its exquisite refined taste which can be expressed as wahu that means pure Japanese decorative style.
