These are roof tiles made on Awaji Island, which has continued to make roof tiles as a pillar of Japan’s tile industry since about 600 AD. These tiles have been etched into the history of Japan for a long time as a building material that suits the local climate, but soon after the Hanshin Awaji earthquake Awaji tiles evolved to included lightweight tiles and strong tiles designed to withstand natural disasters. Also, in addition to the robustness as an outdoor building material, the material is now being used to make tableware and interior decorations to leverage the innate characteristic texture of Ibushi silver.
