One of Japan’s oldest style of ceramics, Mino-yaki porcelain, durable and yet so light, is ideal for contemporary tableware. Made by craftspeople in Gifu, Japan, these rounded square plates combine subtle rustic touches with modern minimalism. Perfect for serving dessert, a snack or just as a beautiful trinket tray, each one is unique in glaze — dusky blue with soft flecking, powder blue with mottled white, and earthy brown with bronze undertones and indigo edges.
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.
