The Mie prefecture in Japan has always been home to many famous ceramic manufacturers. In 2005, four of these manufacturers, specialized in Bankoyaki ceramic, decided to join forces and establish a new company called 4th-market. 4th market takes its name from the city of Yokkaichi where it is located. Yokkaichi means "market on the fourth day". Bankoyaki ceramic is one 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. As time passes by, the daily use of these ceramics will make them more beautiful.

While moulding and rough shaping are done by machine, the refined finishes still require the touch of a skilled craftsmen.
