Mino ware (美濃焼, Mino-yaki) refers to Japanese pottery that was produced in Mino Province around the towns of Toki and Minokamo in Gifu Prefecture, central Japan. The history of Japanese pottery in the Toki area appears to have started more than 1,300 years ago. Some kiln traces and earthenware pieces, which are in the 7th-century style, have been recovered within the territory of the city. Throughout the centuries, four styles of Mino were developed that differ from each other in appearance. These have strong connections to tea ceremony.
Note: Each Tenmoku Matcha Tea Bowl is unique and the specific pattern will be slightly different from the photo.
