“Yachimun” means “pottery” in the Okinawan dialect, and it’s been said that Okinawan pottery history began in the 1600s during the period of the Ryukyu Kingdom. During that era, Yachimun pottery was used as a container for exporting overseas with Awamori (Okinawa shochu), or as a container for importing seafood. These unique colors and thick forms were created by taking various cultural influences from China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan and other parts of South-East Asia. The designs are inspired by the nature of Okinawa island, portraying patterns such as fish, flowers, and abstract motifs with a rustic, peaceful lives of people.
I hope you will enjoy the multicultural influenced pottery in your everyday life!
