In general, Hagi Yaki is not loudly decorated, and the simplicity of its materials and glazes are one of its strong points. The softness of Hagi Yaki means that it not only looks pleasant, but also feels that way too. And its low conductivity means it maintains the heat of foods and drinks such as hot tea, without itself becoming too hot.
Hagi yaki ware usually contains cracks, known as 'Kannyu', in its foundation. This gives it different properties of ventilation and water permeability to porcelain.
This type of Hagi yaki is called Gohonte that is characterized with orange colored spots. GOHONDE glaze is also called an alias,HOTARU(firefly),or Fawn spots. It is made using wood ash glaze after the engobe and this style is popular for those who prefer vivid colors of Hagi yaki ware.
