about mino-yaki


Mino-yaki is produced in the Mizunami, Tajimi, Toki, and Kani regions of Gifu prefecture with a 1300-year history. Mino ware accounts for over 50 percent of Japanese ceramics now. 

 

 As “the way of tea” gained popularity about 400 years ago, craftsmen in Mino began producing artistic tea utensils. Shino 志野 (white and textured), Kizeto 黄瀬戸 (yellow ocher), Oribe 織部  (green pattern over light gray base) and Setoguro 瀬戸黒 (black) are representative of these crafts. Now, 15 types of Mino ware are government-recognized traditional crafts of Japan. 

 

Nowadays, there are many manufacturers of Mino ware, with factories producing large numbers of these fine ceramics. A side variety of ceramics, including tableware, tiles, and tools are produced by inheriting the techniques of the past and being challenged to create new technologies for the future. Mino ware’s long history and high quality makes it a prime example of Japanese ceramics and an excellent addition to any collection.  

 

All items shown on this page are produced by Miyama Co., Ltd., who has continued to challenge themselves to new manufacturing, utilizing their “white porcelain firing technology” and “high molding technique” accumulated in Mino area. More manufacturer introduction, you can find at the end of this page.

about manufacturer


MIYAMA Co., Ltd. was founded in 1977, in the Mino-yaki production area of Mizunami City in Gifu Prefecture.

Using a technique called “casting” (a technique in which mud white porcelain earth is cast into a plaster mold. The technique involves many people’s skill in creating tableware.), their products are created. They utilize their extensive experience, skill, and technology to create a modern Japanese style for contemporary life.

 

“Beautifully finished material”

Finishing material beautifully. For white porcelain, it is important to draw its original whiteness, which will lead us to improve its quality as well. Miyama’s white porcelain is created by firing porcelain clay which is rich in glass component at 1340 degrees. By firing in a high-temperature oven, the clay and glaze get harmonized, vitrified and create translucent luster on its surface, and it becomes an easy-to-wash and stain-resistant material at the same time. It will grow to be more functional and aesthetically pleasing through this process. Tableware with the beauty of utility.
