Frequently Asked Questions

What is Mino Ware?

Mino ware, also known as "Mino-yaki," is a type of Japanese pottery originating from the Mino region in Gifu Prefecture, Japan. It's one of the oldest and most renowned styles of Japanese ceramics, over 1300 years. It remains highly regarded both domestically and internationally as an iconic representation of Japanese pottery.

Where does the name "Heuge" come from and what does it mean?

The CHIPS Japan Heuge collection is named after "Hyougemono" meaning, something with charm. The collection combines traditional techniques, soil, and glaze to create tableware that inherits traditional and modern dining culture.

How can I prevent staining on Mino ware?

To prevent staining, it's best to rinse or wash Mino ware straight after use. For mugs and cups you can use rice water before using the first time, the starch in the rice fills the pores on the surface which makes it difficult for dirt to stain. If stains do form you can try using a mixture of baking soda and water and gently scrub away. There are also specialised ceramic cleaners on the market.
