Made by artisans in Gifu, Japan, these lightweight but durable Mino-yaki porcelain side plates are all unique - each subtly different in glaze. We’ve chosen three glossy styles we particularly adore, a verdant teal green, warm lilac with flecked detailing, and a blue-grey with border details. The unusual soft rounded square silhouette makes them perfect, not just for serving desserts or snacks, but also as attractive trinket trays.
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.
