Adding New Ideas to Ceramics
- Mino Wares
- Masaharu Takagi
More than 1300 years of history, one of Japan's leading ceramic production areas
We started selling sake cups as "Marui Shoten" in 1887 in Gifu Prefecture, a major producer of Mino Wares, which has a history of over 1,300 years.
It has been more than 130 years since the company was founded.
In fact, about half of the ceramics produced in Japan are Mino Wares.
When the 125th Emperor came to the throne, we delivered the tableware to the Imperial Household Agency.
We are proud of our craftsmen's high level of skill.
Up to now, we have produced many products for the hotel and restaurant industry.
Masaharu Takagi, our fifth president, has been promoting Japanese pottery around the world.
We want to express the splendor of Japan's four seasons, which we rediscovered through our experience, in a completely different way.
This is why we developed the Warm and Cool series.
Cherry blossoms and fireworks emerge
The point we were most concerned about and struggled with was "coloration".
First, we developed a product that beautifully reflects the cherry blossoms and fireworks.
The color of the cool series changes when the temperature is below 17 degrees Celsius and the warm series when the temperature is above 45 degrees Celsius.
Special paints are mixed and fired in a special kiln.
We fired prototypes over and over again and experimented with them until we saw the ideal color change.
At temperatures close to the change point, there is a slight change.
At cooler and hotter temperatures, the color changes to a more distinct color.
Japanese Culture Makes Dining Fun
The history of Japanese pottery, which began as far back as 15,000 years ago with Jomon pottery
Throughout its history, pottery has evolved into various shapes, sizes and colors depending on its use.
Can we create a new innovation in the history of such pottery?
The change in temperature makes Japanese culture, such as cherry blossoms and fireworks, emerge in vivid colors.
Pour your favorite drink and enjoy the change in design.
