wikipedia on sometsuke pottery 

Blue-and-white ware. A white pottery with indigo designs using cobalt oxide paint on the surface of white pottery.  A coat of transparent glaze is also applied and the porcelain is fired at temperatures above 1300 degrees.

Also called Qinghua in China it became popular in the Yuan dynasty.  It grew in dominance in the Ming and also influenced ceramics in other Asian countries and Europe.  Sometsuke was first made in Japan in Arita during the Genna era (1615-24) by a Korean potter called Ri Sanpei.

The Nabeshima kiln in Japan started to make superior sometsuke porcelain products. In Seto Katou Tamikichi  (1771-1824) adapted Hizen sometsuke techniques to make sometsuke porcelain comparable in quality to that of Imari.
