Ko-Dakeo/Old Takeo Yaki

KODAKEO or old Takeo pottery is from the Edo Period of Saga Prefecture. It is closely related to Karatsu pottery.
When I saw some of these wares for the first time I thought “ Oh my heart, I’m in love,” As many of you know certain styles, or pieces will call to you....they almost seem to belong to you, are somehow a part of you....and if you are lucky, you can afford to get one! ;)
