Saga of Jaraah
Clan Tomoko is renowned for its porcelain. Though the clay from the Twilight Lakes is excellent, it is not of the same quality as the clay from the riverbeds in Clan Tomoko’s ancestral lands. Nonetheless, around the time of Xelem XV, Clan Tomoko’s porcelain began to markedly improve in quality well beyond what other clans as well as the potters of Masulee and Sob-Rooz could achieve. This quality differential persists to this day. Clan Tomoko porcelain is the hardest available. In its unglazed/unpainted form, it is a milky white semi-translucent color. It’s strength lends itself to delicate and finely featured pieces that are simply not possible with the weaker ceramics of other manufacturers. Some say Clan Tomoko has found a way to transmute ordinary clay from the Twilight Lakes into clay of the same quality as Clan Tomoko’s ancestral sources. Others suspect Clan Tomoko has simply discovered a secret source of high quality clay, or a secret ingredient that vastly improves the quality of local clay.
