About the Craft/Artisan

Our tea tasting cup is Mino-yaki or Mino ware: a kind of ceramic produced in Gifu Prefecture, Japan. Mino yaki is the oldest form of pottery in Japan, originating in the 7th century. Mino ware does not maintain a single style. Rather, it includes 15 variations, all of which are designated traditional Japanese crafts. It was during the Edo period (1603-1868) that porcelain production began. By the Showa period (1926-1988) Mino became the pottery of greatest production in Japan. This is due to its prestige as well as new technology/techniques that enabled high-quality production at higher volumes.
