The Shino-Yaki glaze is produced by our very own Potters Stephen Roberts and Rob Natoil.
The name Shino-Yaki is a Japanese term for a particular style born in the 16th century during the Golden Age of Japanese pottery. Shino ware was widely sought after for its humble aesthetic and suited the wabi-sabi style of the Zen Buddhist tea masters.
Shino glazes can be a combination of thick snow white to red scorch marks and each Shino Yaki piece varies in these characteristics - not one is ever the same. Each piece honouring and resembling the ancient techniques of pottery.
Stevie first used Shino glaze when working for Ian Reid at Flaxton Gardens Pottery and continued to learn about Shino Yaki with friend and mentor Rowley Drysdale. He had the privilege of seeing some of the original Shino pottery in Japan.
This beautiful glaze takes us back to a time in history before plastic, where art was shaped from the Earth.
Thanks Stevie
