Seto-Taishō (‘General Seto’) its name derives from the material of which it is composed, ceramics called “setomono”, from Seto, an area famous for earthenware. The word is used like our “china” (chinoiserie) said in relation to this type of crockery.
Composed of these crockery and household objects no longer used, Seto-Taishō roams the kitchens creating chaos and panic until it crashes into something falling apart and quickly recomposing itself to follow up the mess.
It belongs to the category of ‘tsukumogami’, objects that receive a soul and human features after a certain period of time.
