Oribe ware (織部焼 Oribe-yaki) is a type of Japanese pottery most identifiable for its use of green copperglaze and bold painted design. It was the first use of colored stoneware glaze by Japanese potters.

It is one of the Mino styles originating in the late 16th century. It takes its name from tea masterFuruta Oribe (1544–1615).

Oribe is a style of pottery with much variation. There is a great variety in the type of ware as well as the surface treatment. Like many types of Japanese pottery, bowls and dishes are common. Oribe wares also include lidded jars and handled food containers.

The clay body typically has a low-iron content and is formed by hand, on a potter’s wheel, or by drape molding. The surface is painted and decorated with lively surface designs, which may be based on nature, geometric patterns, or a combination of the two. White slip and clear glaze are also used.

For the brilliant green color, wares are fired using oxidation at 1220 degrees Celsius. If these conditions are not met, the glaze may be brown or red.
