Akahada Pottery is from Nara Prefecture which began in 1573. It was one of the seven kilns favored by the great tea master Kobori Enshu. The most common design of AKAHADA is probably the simplistic drawings in primary colors of common life including houses, people, flowers and animals. The drawings are referred to as Nara-e, or Nara pictures.
