Origins of the style
During the late Momoyama (1573–1615) and early Edo periods (1615–1868) in Japan, the art of the tea ceremony underwent new developments. Great tea masters like Takeno Jōō (1502-1555), Sen no Rikyū (1522-1591) and Furuta Oribe (1544–1615) have revolutionized the utensils, rituals and ceramics used in tea ceremonies. Oribeyaki is a type of Japanese ceramic stoneware recognizable by its freely applied glaze and by its eccentric essence of forms. Green Oribe (青 織 部, Ao-Oribe), has as its characteristics, a classic green glaze inspired by the colors of the mountains or the scenes along the rivers. The surface is painted and decorated with bright brush strokes and surface designs.
