「Isezaki Bizen Ware Pottery」
Bizen pottery is known for its practically, simplicity and feeling of spontaneity.
The colors and textures that appear on the surface greatly vary and yet unglazed it is also humble in appearance.
Each piece is unique and utterly original as its creation process surrenders itsel to the whimsical interplay of clay and fire produced by pine wood firing for well over 10days. Bizen is the only traditional pottery production center whose chimney’s smoke hasn’t stopped for more than 1000years. It has been designated as an important part of japan’s cultural heritage.
