Oribe-yaki (織部焼) is a type of Japanese pottery known for its free flowing glazes and asymmetrical, hand-formed shape. Dating from the 16th century, Oribe ware exists in many styles. One of the most famous is Ao-Oribe or Green Oribe, which is often decorated with geometric patterns painted with an iron glaze and then partially covered in a vibrant green copper-sulfate glaze which contrasts against the white background.
