  • Chosho-ken Tobo
    [Ceramics, Porcelain]
    We make porcelain using a pottery stone that light can pass through. We put holes in the base before firing it, and finally fill the holes with glaze. The glaze turns into glass after firing. This technique began in Ming Dynasty China. Light passes through these holes filled with glass, and look like fireflies flying around. This is the origin of the technique.
