Kirigome-yaki Porcelain
Kirigome-yaki is porcelain ware, produced at Kirigome district in current Kami-machi in Miyagi prefecture
of northern Japan. It is said that the kilns were started in the early Edo period, by Koreans who were
brought back to the region by the lord, Date Masamune (1567- 1637) for private use and gifts.  Although
this story is a myth without any historical proof, later in the early 19th century, the kilns produced porcelain,
mostly Imari style blue & white utensils and some enameled wares.
