With a history of more than 1300 years, Mino-yaki is a type of pottery and porcelain from the Tono region in Gifu Prefecture.
By combining the traditional technique of kintsugi, art of repairing broken ceramic ware with a glue lacquer, with three identically shaped but different-coloured plates have been cut and refitted to form these unique designs. Whereas traditional kintsugi usually winds gold leaf on top of the lacquer, these pieces have just a black lacquer finish. This has created a new appearance from the conventional method.
