Iga ware is said to have begun during the Kamakura Period (1185-1333) and was originally produced in a kiln fueled by firewood. Firing this clay at a high temperature creates a coarse and porous material which allows heat to enter the ingredients' cores. Iga Clay is best identified by its high heat-retaining capabilities and is produced from a sedimentary layer rich in the remains of plants and animals that lived 4 million years ago. It retains the same temperature range of simmering at a low flame even when it is removed from the fire, drawing out food's natural umami.
