about the brand
The Mie prefecture in Japan has always been home to many famous Ceramic manufacturers. In 2005 four of these manufacturers, specialized in Bankoyaki Ceramics, decided to join forces and establish a new company called 4th-market. 4th-market takes it’s name from the city of Yokkaichi where it is located. Yokkaichi means “market on the fourth day”. Bankoyaki ceramic is on of the most important local industries in Yokkaichi city.
The main focus of Japanese “Bankoyaki” artisans is to create beautiful and practical pottery suitable for day to day use. Resulting in products with a perfect shape. And as time passes by, the daily use of these ceramics will make them more beautiful. Bankoyaki ceramics are well known all over Japan. The nabe pan for example, with it’s unique heat resistance, covers 80~90 % of the complete Japanese market share. Also the well known traditional Japanese teapot (Kyusu) is a Bankoyaki product.
