Ko-Seto wares were produced in the area near Seto City, present-day Aichi Prefecture. Production of Seto ware began in the late thirteenth century and continued through the Muromachi Period. The ceramic utensils of the Ko-Seto (old Seto) kilns are noted for incised or stamped flowering plant and arabesque motifs under an iron brown or yellowgreen glaze. The first iron glaze at Seto was thin and uneven, unlike the opaque, brownish black glaze (temmoku) on imported Chinese pieces.
