Around 1586, Shino ware suddenly appeared in records of tea ceremonies, being used as the bowl The Shino ware was being used as the tea bowl in tea ceremonies. During the Keicho period, problems with production efficiency and other issues caused a decline and eventually a complete halt in production.
Arakawa Toyozo, after experiencing much difficulty, revived the tradition of Shino ware, which became a success. He was eventually named a Living National Treasure and is regarded as one of the finest potters in history.
Born on March 21st, 1894. Educated by Miyanaga Tozan, went to Kamakura and aided in the making of pottery at Kitaoji Ronsanjin. In 1930, he discovered the process of using a kiln from the Momoyama period at Ogaya in the Kani district of Gifu prefecture. Nearby, he began to work, building a kiln and reproducing Shino, Yellow Seto (Kizeto), and Black Seto ware (Setoguro). 30 years as a Living National Treasure and 46 years in the Order of Culture. Died August 11th, 1985 at 91 years of age.
Shino ware is one technique of ceramic art that flourished during the tea ceremony craze of the Momoyama period; it was the first white pottery to be created in Japan. Due to its white color, images can be drawn on the sides, also making it the first pottery in Japan to feature brushed-on paintings. Although it declined in popularity after the Edo period, at 1930 the early of the Showa era the discovery of old Shino kilns by Arakawa Toyozo ( 1894 – 1985 ) along with subsequent research led to a second revival for this art form.
In the traditional method of production, a mould is cast using eggshell-colored "Mogusa" dirt, a specialty of the Mino region with a light stickiness like brown sugar, after which a thick feldspar glaze is applied and the pottery is fired.
Shino ware has its origins in the traditional incense smelling ceremony of the Muromachi period where it belonged to the "Shino School", founded by Shino Soshin ( ? – 1480 ) who was ordered to produce pottery for the Mino region. Let's take a look at several representative techniques of this ceramic art.
Images are drawn beneath the white glaze. Images are drawn on the first coat with a metal powder known as "onisaka", after which another layer of glaze is applied and the pottery is baked.
