Maintaining the tradition of Mino-yaki pottery since the 9th century, Yamasan-Miyake produces high quality tableware and has been a specialty donburi producer for over 20 years. They firmly believe that the overall enjoyment of a dish comes not only from the taste and aroma, but also from the vessel in which it is served. Their tableware is manufactured in a small-lot process allowing them to give attention to each individual piece. As a result, their bowls and plates have lasting durability and vivid color.
Mino-yaki earthenware is specialty pottery produced in the Mino Region (around current Toki City) 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 typesof traditional handicraft in Japan
Kuro-Yu Unofu Donburi Bowl
The Kuro-Yu Unofu Donburi Bowl features a unique graphic multicolored blue glaze over a rich black base. The thick glaze is allowed to drip down both the exterior and interior of the bowl producing one-of-a-kind coloration and texturization. Weighty and substantial, this donburi would serve as a great ramen or noodle bowl, but is even large enough to be used as a communal serving bowl. When flipped upside-down this donburi bears a striking resemblance to that enduring symbol of Japan, Mount Fuji.
