In the Edo period, ceramic ware and pottery was used as an offering the the feudal lords or the shogunate.
Nabeshima-yaki is a ceramic ware established by the Nabeshima family in the late 17th century in Kyushu. Nabeshima family established their own style (Nabeshima-yaki, name taken from their family name) following the techniques of the well-known Arita-yaki.
