What is Tetsuaka?
Tetsuaka was developed in the 12th-14th century during the Kamakura era way before oribe or shino were developed. The tetsuaka glaze is based on an old Chinese tenmoku style, and has high levels of iron oxide. The color of the glaze is dependent very much on the firing technique and the speed at which it is cooled down. Tetsuaka ware is produced in Gifu (Mino-yaki), and Aichi (Seto-yaki and Akazu-yaki).
