Early Shino Ware Small Dish | Japan, 16C¥25,000 (tax included)
An excavated Shino ware small dish baked in the Azuchi-Momoyama period. Shino glaze like light snowfall, wraps the ware. Shino ware is a type of Mino ware and it is said that the first white ware produced in Japan.
There is no doubt that it was made to be conscious of the white porcelain of China and Korea. However a style of Shino ware had been made under influence of tea masters, and complex feeling of frustration that porcelain could not be made in Japan, and then it evolved into a deformed ware called Oribe ware. It can be said that it is a different direction of white ware like the Joseon white porcelain, which pursued “whiteness”.
There is some small lack of glaze on the rim and a kiln scratch on the back, but there are no notable defects. Many of Shino’s small dishes are excavated with cracks or chips, and it is rare that they are in such good condition.
