Her is an introduction to "MINO-YAKI":
The Mino-yaki is made in the Tono region of Gifu prefecture and represents about 50% of the pottery produced and sold in Japan.
About 1300 years ago, an earthenware, called Sueki, is said to have been the beginning of pottery culture in the Tono region of Gifu prefecture. Around the Azuchi Momoyama period (1570 - 1600), and concurrent with rising popularity of the evolving tea ceremony, Mino-yaki appeared with a higher artistic quality.
Free-form, bold and delicate painting, rich in color and the unique artistic style of Minoyaki is said to be the pinnacle of aesthetic sense. Numerous pottery were produced for the use by tea masters. Among them, Kiseto, Setoguro, Shino, Oribe has been loved throughout the years, and are still the basis of Minoyaki.
