Mino Bunzan Kiln
The Mino Bunzan Kiln has a rich history that has been passed down since the Meiji period. Each piece is meticulously handcrafted by skilled artisans, making them unique and highly popular as tableware. The clay used at Bunzan Kiln is a blend of white Shino clay as a base, combined with a high-strength clay that maintains the soft texture of the final product. This unique combination of materials allows for the creation of lightweight and durable daily use ceramics that are only possible through the technology and processes of the Mino Bunzan Kiln.
