Undercoating is said to be difficult because it burns at high fire, it is said that it is difficult to produce various colors, but pursuing a combination of pigment and glaze which vividly develops color even at high temperature makes it almost transparent like a glass coat It made color expression possible. Pottery's high fire glaze technology is a work that confidently confidence that you will not lose anywhere.
