Product Description

Mino ware (Mino yaki in Japanese) is a type of Japanese ceramics with a long history, which is produced within the Tono area of Gifu Prefecture. Instead of a focus on one single style, it has a variety of distinguishable types of pottery. Specifically there are over 15 types of Mino ware ceramics that are designated as traditional crafts.

Fenukama's ceramicist Kudo Kou was born in 1966 in Dachi, Gifu Prefecture. After completing studies at the Tajimi City Ceramic Design Institute in 1991 he began working for his family ceramic business. Skills and knowledge from his father Rikuo Kudo were passed down during this time, and Kudo became certified as a traditional mino ware craftsman in 2005. Their focus is on making by hand Oribe, Shino, Kohiki, Akae, and Annan-style Kuresu-e pottery.

This medium plate is perfect for serving mains and side dishes. An off-white glaze is dipped over a dark clay body and kiln fired, producing small and irregular crackles. As every plate is handcrafted, each is unique and will differ slightly from piece to piece.
