It is fired in an anagama kiln for over ten days which produces a natural ash deposits.
Iga ware is fired in the fire box.
The placement of the pieces in a kiln is very important for deposit of the natural ash.
Iga ware has a part of scorching at the bottom of the work.
The flow of the fire flame is extremely strong in the fire box, like in a whirl.
So all of the works putting in the fire box tend to get much natural ash deposits.
