Type of Ceramic
Mino ware (美濃焼) 
stands as one of Japan's top three renowned ceramics, with Mino-yaki leading the pack. The kilns in Toki City, Tajimi City, and the Mino region of Gifu Prefecture are the primary hubs for ceramic production in Japan. Mino-yaki ceramics, in particular, dominate the market, comprising over 60% of Japan's ceramic production. They are widely recognized as emblematic of Japanese ceramic craftsmanship, representing the pinnacle of the industry.

Colouring technique
The color evolves continuously during firing. Influenced not only by its placement in the kiln but also by external factors like weather, temperature, and humidity, each piece emerges with a unique finish. From subtle variations in glaze shade to intriguing features like sagging, accumulations, and iron powder, no two pieces are alike. Despite employing the same clay, technique, and glaze, every item showcases its distinct "individuality" born from the kiln's transformative process.

Kindly be aware that product images serve as a reference, and variations in glaze and size may occur, adding a touch of individuality to each piece.
