At the end of the 16th century, in the Momoyama period (1582~1615), the production of ceramics began in a new place in Japan. Of these, in Minoyō (美濃窯), Kiseto (黄瀬戸), Setoguro (瀬戸黒), Shino (志野), Oribe (織部), for example, new forms of tea bowls and tableware were produced. From Karatsu (唐津) was introduced a climbing kiln (登り窯). Minoyō achieved a stunning development in such ceramics compared with other kiln locates. However, demand decreased because of changes in the style of the tea ceremony. The Shino, Oribe in Minoyō did not last long, and were eventually and forgotten. In the Shōwa period (1926~1989), there were ceramic artists who strove to restore Shinoware. Their names were Arakawa Toyozō (荒川豊蔵) and Katō Tōkurō(加藤唐九郎). Arakawa Toyozō was born in Mino, and after having seen the Tamagawa bowl (玉川) from Shino held by the Sekido clan, discovered a ceramic fragment from Momoyama Shino in the mountains of ōkaya (大萱). After discovery, Arakawa spent the rest of his restoring Momoyama Shino ceramics. Katō Tōkurō was born in Seto (瀬戸). He acquired book of secrets from Katō Shuntai (加藤春岱), who had made Shinoware at the end of the Edo period (1603~1872). Further, Tōkurō learned from Katō Bakutai(加藤麦袋) how to create Shinoware and began making it in earnest. Of the ceramics Tōkurō produced, Shinoware was the only style he continued to make his entire life. This paper examines the process by which Arakawa and Tōkurō restored Momoyama Shinoware, which had been forgotten for a long time, and from their ceramic works, also considers future restoration of Momoyama Shino ceramics.
