Mino Ware

Mino ware is produced in Tono, Gifu, Japan. It has maintained its long history and tradition but adapted for modern times. A notable feature of Mino ware is its wide variety. Mino ware does not maintain a single style, but consists of over 15 types of pottery registered as traditional crafts. Four notable styles we love are Oribe - charaterized by deep glaze, unique form and geometric patterns, Setoguro - all black glazed, Shinoware - known by design patterns underneath its glaze; and Kizeto - all about a humble and simple form.
