About the work

Bizen pottery is an unglazed, high-fired stoneware. Its decorative effects come from iron-rich clay, red pine ash and wrapped straw cords, which fire off and leave brilliant red streaks. It has a quiet and refined natural quality found in no other Japanese ceramic center.

Bizen is named after the village of Imbe, Bizen in Okayama prefecture. It has a history of more than 1,000 years, which makes it one of the oldest pottery making techniques in Japan. Bizen ware was designated a traditional Japanese craft by the government in 1982.
