The Tamba style of pottery, a specialty of Hyogo prefecture, is a traditional industry of the town of Konda (now the city of Sasayama). It stands alongside the Seto, Tokoname (Aichi prefecture), Shigaraki (Shiga prefecture), Bizen (Okayama prefecture), and Echizen (Fukui prefecture) styles as one of the "Rokkoyo", or six old pottery styles of Japan, with a long and storied history that has continued to the present day.
Until recently, owing to a lack of records from the middle Kamakura period, it was thought that the style originated during the Kamakura period. However, in 1977 (Showa 52), the Hyogo Board of Education conducted an archaeological investigation of a kiln midden, concomitant to the renovation of a prefectural road. The excavation revealed old-Tamba vases with illustrations and engravings, dating from the late Heian period to the early Kamakura period, along with other vases and pots. This discovery made it clear that this was the birthplace of Tamba-yaki, and that the style originated in the late Heian period.
Tamba ware undergoes beautiful changes in color as it is baked. The clay is fired for roughly sixty minutes in an ascending kiln at a peak temperature of 1300 degrees Celsius. The ash produced by the burning fuel (pine logs) then falls into the kiln and fuses with the glaze, producing fascinating colors and patterns called "hai-kaburi" that are unique to each vessel thus created. Thanks to this most-distinctive feature of Tamba ware, pottery in the style is not just prized for its practical merits, but also widely appreciated by connoisseurs of earthenware for its aesthetic value.
