The pottery has three features: The blue cracks as "Ao-hibi," which are spread throughout a piece of pottery, the "Hashiri-Goma" running horse painted in the style of the Kano school, and the "Niju-Yaki" superimpsosition method of creating a piece of ware with two layers. You can feel simple taste and warmth of Soma Ware.
