Shigaraki stoneware, distinguished by natural glazes and a rugged quartz-particle surface texture, has been created in Japan for a thousand years. Asian art historian Meher McArthur traces the history and evolution of this ceramic tradition from its origin as functional stoneware for the masses, to tea ware for the Samurai elite and merchant classes, to its recent status as highly collectible art.
