Mino

The pottery producing region of Mino, in Gifu prefecture, is home to many traditional kilns. The founder of the kiln that produced the items below began firing Shino and Oribe during the end of the Edo Period, in the late 1860s. This was a very tumultuous time in the history of Japan; the Meiji Restoration that followed saw the once isolationist country open its doors to modernization and western influences. Sadly, due to the changing times, many traditional artisans were pressured to abandoned their crafts. The founder of this kiln was able to protect his traditional operation, and it is now run by the fifth generation. They continue to specialize in Shino and Oribe.
