Shino pottery 志野焼 Shinoyaki

quote
Shino pottery, so pure and calm, has since its birth in the late 16th century tugged at the heartstrings of the Japanese. A Shino chawan (tea bowl) figured prominently in Yasunari Kawabata's masterpiece novel, "A Thousand Cranes." There is a divine presence in the best of Shino wares. When one gazes down into a Shino chawan filled with emerald matcha (green tea), it is an uplifting experience.

The name Shino is thought to have been taken from
Shino Sohshin (1444-1523), a master in the art of incense.
Another theory is that the name comes from a tea caddy in Shino's possession that was called "Bamboo Grass," which is also pronounced "shino."

Arakawa Toyozo -
Arakawa Toyozo had a prolific career working at the kiln of Miyanaga Tozan (1868-1941) in Kyoto and then with Kitaoji Rosanjin (1883-1959) in Kamakura. He established his own kiln in 1933.
In 1955 he was named a Living National Treasure for Shino and Black Seto ware. "Arakawa Toyozo was one of the most gifted potters and scholars Japan has ever known."
(Robert Yellin).
