*About Oribe-yaki: “Oribe ware, also known as 織部焼 Oribe–yaki, is a style of Japanese pottery that first appeared in the sixteenth century. It is a type of Japanese stoneware recognized by its freely-applied glaze as well as its dramatic visual departure from the more somber, monochrome shapes and vessels common in Raku ware of the time.” (by Wikipedia)
The name “Oribe” is derived from Furuta Oribe, a pupil of Tea Master, Sen Rikyū, under whose guidance it was first produced.
