Oribe-ware Ceramics

Oribe Furate was a Daimyo (Feudal Lord) and a master of the tea ceremonies during the Momoyama era (1573 - 1603) and inspired this type of Mino-ware.

Oribe-ware has distinctive characteristics including a green glaze and unbalanced lines that resemble dripping water. Many of the designs are based on every day life and natural environments around us.

The uneven finish of this style of ceramic has come to be seen in Jpanese culture as having a richly expressive beuty.
