Seto ware: A ceramic center situated around Seto City in Aichi Prefecture, or the ware produced by the Seto kilns. Following in the wake of the pottery-making tradition of the Sanage kiln, the Seto kiln began producing glazed pottery ware from the end of the Heian period. The Seto kiln and Mino kiln were the only places where glazed pottery ware was produced in medieval Japan. In Seto, high quality pieces copied from Chinese ceramic ware were produced. From the later half of the Edo period, the Seto kiln produced porcelain ware as well.
