Mumyoi Ware Gyokudo Kamamoto
Gyokudo Kamamoto is one of the leading Mumyoi workshops on Sado. Mumyoi pottery uses special clay that contains ferrous oxide composites. Its clay becomes very dense and hard when completely baked. Mumyoi ware are said to enrich the taste of green tea, coffee, sake, and beer. A hands-on experience with the potter's wheel is available from ¥3,000 (and a tax, and shipping costs, no overseas shipping). English information is also available.
