Shino ware is Japanese pottery, usually stoneware, originally from Mino Province, in present-day Gifu Prefecture, Japan. It emerged in the 16th century, but the use of shino glaze is now widespread, both in Japan and abroad. It is identified by thick white glazes, red scorch marks, and a texture of small holes.
With mountain soil and river water, Takumi Shino is a craft that pursues the simplicity of the material and is making pottery with old-fashioned techniques. Because it is handmade, you can feel the warmth of one product as an exquisite work.
