Nature Ave - Beauty and Utility

Based in Gifu Prefecture, Nature Ave works with local artisans to create their goods with beauty and utility. These artisans focus on a sleek, modern look for their cookware and tableware.

Mino-yaki Earthenware

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 types of traditional handicraft in Japan.

YUI Tea Cup

Refined and elegant are two words we would use to describe the YUI Tea Cups by Nature Ave. Intended to promote relaxation during teatime, these handcrafted and meticulously-made tea cups express the marriage of beauty and function—that’s the commitment Nature Ave has to creating products. YUI bears a simple, ergonomic silhouette and a fine matte texture which is nice to the touch. As evidenced by their fine details, YUI Tea Cups are adorned with unique differences in tone across their body and sometimes show the drinker marks of the artisan which formed them.

YUI Tea Cups are best enjoyed with a matching YUI Side-Handle Tea Pot or YUI Wooden Handle Dobin Teapot (sold separately).
