Three traditional colors of Mino-yaki are available
There are various kinds of Mino-yaki products, with 15 styles certified as Traditional Craft. The four colors from the traditional styles are called “Oribe”,”Shino”,”Kizeto”, and “Setoguro”. They are arranged to suit modern designs. Three of them are all available for purchase.
Oribe (Green): Oribe style was produced mainly in Mino between Momoyama and Genwa period. This style was named after Oribe Furuta, who was a tea master from Mino as this was his favorite style. The most famous design is “Ao-oribe” with its innovative shapes and patterns. Other designs include Kuro-oribe, Aka-oribe, and Namuri-oribe.
Kizeto (Yellow): Kizeto literally means ‘yellow pottery from Seto’ and was produced between the Muromachi and Momoyama periods. While the pale yellow color gives a soft and peaceful impression, some products have carvings, decorations, or brown/green spots.
Setoguro (Black): Setoguro style is said to have been Sen no Rikyu’s favourite. Cups are drawn out of the oven while the glaze is still melting to be cooled down quickly in order to create the black finish.
