The history of this pottery started in the 8th century. Whilst tea did not became popular until the 16th century, Iga Pottery's tea-ware was notable among tea-lovers of the time. In the 18th century, Iga invited masters of pottery from Kyoto and Seto to bring their latest techniques and glazes, so that Iga potters could learn from these craftsmen. Soon after, Iga further developed their range of pottery by making daily products such as earthenware pots, rice bowls and plates in addition to their traditional tea items.
