Shino ware

Shino ware

nihongo|Shino ware|志野焼|Shino-yaki is a type of Japanese pottery most identifiable for thick white glazes, red scorch marks, and texture of small holes.

It is one of the Mino styles from the late 16th century. Like other Mino wares, the Shino style is based on older Seto with changes to shape, decoration, and finish.

Forms are usually squat and cylindrical, thick but lightweight. Dishes, bowls, and tea utensils are most common.

Pieces can be grey, red, or white, painted with iron oxide or decorated with glaze.

Firings of Shino tend to be of lower temperature for a longer period of time, and then a slow cooling process. These conditions do not allow the glaze to melt fully, and the result is a thick glaze that often has a crawling pattern.
