Japanese potters developed kohiki stoneware after original Korean models. It is characterized by white glaze on a brownish background. It was called “flour-like” or “powder-like”. The term kohiki means “powder-coated”, while the alternative term kofuki can be translated as “powder-blown”. In Japan, the whitish glaze is mainly used for sake and tea wares. Kohiki stoneware is highly praised in aesthetic terms.
