What is Mino ware ?

Mino ware (called Mino yaki in Japanese) is a ceramic ware produced in the Tono area of Gifu prefecture. It has maintained its long history and tradition but adapted for modern times. A notable feature of Mino ware is its wide variety of pottery. Mino ware does not maintain a single style, but instead has over 15 types of pottery registered as traditional handicrafts.

History of Mino-ware

Mino ware was created during the 5th century when Sue ware, potter’s wheels, and hillside kilns were brought to Japan from the Korean peninsula. During the Heian period (794-1185), Sue ware white porcelain was improved by being fired with an ash coating glaze.

From the Azuchi-Momoyama period (1573-1600) until the beginning of the Edo period (1603-1868), the rise of the tea ceremony brought a wealth of artistic pottery. The prominent types of Mino ware like Oribe, Shino, and Kizeto are extremely important. Then during the second half of the 17th century, household containers for daily use started to be produced and pottery covered in white glaze to look like porcelain started being produced. In the final years of the Edo period (1603-1868), porcelain production began and translucent feldspar porcelain came to be produced.

In the Meiji period (1868-1912), various new techniques started being developed like sheet copper and screenprinting as the coloring process was given security by the importation of a blue and white dyeing colorant. Around the middle of the Meiji period, daily household containers started to be produced by larger manufacturers, lowering the cost. Then, at the end of the Taisho period (1912-1926), mechanization advanced by electricity supply increased the production volume, which changed the woodburning climbing kilns to charcoal kilns.

During the Showa period (1926-1988), production of fine items and tiles started, and Mino ware became the form of pottery boasting the greatest production in Japan, both in terms of prestige and volume.

Japanese Craftmanships

In order to create the unique pinched shape, multiple moulds are used for each product. This means that the joints need to be smoothened by hand, hence, it takes longer and is more involved than the construction of ordinary mugs.
