Oribe Matcha Tea Bowl by Fudogama

Oribe Matcha Tea Bowl

This bowl is a timeless piece expressing the signature Oribe deep green glaze. Its design incorporates the sweeping brushstrokes reminiscent of Japanese calligraphy.

This bowl reflects the traditional techniques preserved by Mino potters and free-spirited creativity representing the Momoyama period. Fudogama modestly attempt to express the identity of their products in their universal beauty, by eliminating excessive decoration.

Since each item is handmade, there will be slight differences in colour, shape and thickness. The hand painted design of the vessel exemplifies the uniqueness of each piece. This is one of the characters of wabi-sabi.

Mino-yaki Earthenware and Oribe Style 

Mino-yaki earthenware is specialty pottery produced in the Mino area of Gifu prefecture which began in the 7th century. Mino-yaki continues to adapt to modern lifestyles while preserving its history and tradition. One of the signature characteristics of Mino-yaki earthenware is its diversity. Mino-yaki does not adhere to a single form, as it has over 15 registered types of traditional handicraft in Japan. The best-known form is Oribe Ware, which was created by Oribe Furuta, a disciple of the influential tea ceremony master, Sen no Rikyu, at the beginning of the Edo Period in the 17th century.
