NK-014 Setoyaki Beni-Shino Matcha Bowl (Aichi Prefecture, Setoyaki)
Shino-ware is a type of Japanese pottery characterized by thick white glazes, red scorch marks, and a texture of small holes.
It is one of the Mino styles from the late 16th century, and is based on older Setoyaki with changes to shape, decoration, and finish. Forms are usually squat, cylindrical, thick, yet lightweight.
Pieces can be grey, red, or white, painted with iron oxide or decorated with glaze. Firings of Shino tend to be at lower temperatures for longer periods of time, followed by a slow cooling process. These conditions do not allow the glaze to melt fully, and the result is a thick glaze that often has a crawling pattern.
Setoyaki (Seto City, Aichi Prefecture) is home to one of the six main kilns of Japanese pottery.
The six main places of Japanese ceramic ware are: Setoyaki, Tokoname, Echizen, Shigarakiyaki, Tambayaki, Bizenyaki.
