ORIBE YAKI 織部焼

Oribe ware. Produced mainly from 1600 to the 1630s, this high-fired pottery juxtaposing rich fluid glazes with abstract geometric designs resulted from technological innovations at the Mino kilns. Most pieces have iron pigment painted on the clay and open areas splashed with a dark green ash and copper glaze. Variant Oribeyaki types include sou-oribe (completely covered with green glaze), ao-oribe (partially covered with green glaze), e-oribe (with iron painted pattens), aka-oribe (combination of red and white clay), shino-oribe (utilizing techniques of e-shino) and kuro-oribe (with black glaze). The name refers to the great Mino-born tea master Furuta Oribe (1544-1615); his exact relationship to the pottery is unclear, although the ware may reflect his aesthetics. Oribe potters often employed moulds to make complex shapes and experimented with a range of vessel forms, often including sets of dishes known as mukouzuke.
