What is inban?

Inban is one of the printing skills used in Japan. The selected pattern will be printed from paper to porcelain. Before printing, the craftsman would wet the patterned “tensha-gami” (known as the printing paper), and then put it on a unglazed pottery. The craftsman would repeat the procedure and print one by one. Since it is a fully hand-made process done by the skilled craftsman, each plate, even made from the same patterned paper, comes with a different face at the end.
