種子島焼

Tanegashima-yaki(Tanegashima ware/種子島焼) is a Japanese pottery made in Tanegashima island. 

Tanegashima island is one of the islands belonging to Osumi islands, which is located south of Kyushu island.  Tanegashima is close to Yakushima, World Heritage Site since 1993. 

Tanegashima ware can trace its roots to Yokino-yaki(Yokino ware/能野焼) which was also made in Japan before WWII.
