A serving plate for canapes, a base for table displays, or a desk tray for stationery — there’s something about the Mino-Yaki Tatara platter that makes it extra versatile. Handcrafted using a slab-pottery technique called tatara, this platter is completely flat. Arabesque edges give it an elegant floral form, made rustic by subtle weave-like texturing and a matte Aegean blue or deep green glaze.
We simply love these tatara pieces, they use form and colour to bring real warmth to minimalism.
Believed to the oldest form of artistic pottery produced in Japan, Mino-yaki dates as far back as the Nara Period 710-794. Produced in the old Mino Province, in present-day Gifu Prefecture, it became popular for traditional tea ceremony vessels. Today, the styles of Mino-yaki are as varied as they are beautiful — from the warm rustic glazes of hand-thrown traditional Kiso Seto, Black Seto, Shino and Oribe ware to the soft pastels of modern tableware.
