What is Koseto?
Koseto (also spelt "Kozeto") was developed in the 12th-14th century during the Kamakura era way before oribe or shino were developed. Koseto literally means old seto. Koseto glazes, more often than not, consist of a complimentary mix of black and brown which gives off a wonderful exquisite mix. This type of glaze was often used in ancient tea ceremony due to its simple and refined beauty. Koseto ware is produced in Gifu (Mino-yaki), and Aichi (Seto-yaki and Akazu-yaki).
