The secret recipe to prepare this premium blue glaze out of recycled thatch has been handed down in the family from generation to generation for 420 years. By using the ashes of burned used thatch from traditional Kayabuki roofs, it was possible to recreate the stunning and extremely rare glaze called “aofuji glaze”, a grayish, maybe even blue or aquamarine color that is recorded to have been mixed by the first Hachizan 420 years ago.
