[KOUDO KAMURA] (1930-)
Born in Sone, Okayama City in 1930.
Established his own kiln on top of Hakkodai Mountain in 1981.
Adjacent to the Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter in 1956.
Selected for the Japan Traditional Crafts Exhibition in 1958.
Bizen-Yaki (Okayama Prefecture) is created using the Yakishime method of firing unglazed wares at high temperatures.
Using red pine wood in the firing process beautiful natural colours and tones emerge from the clay.
Bizen clay has a high iron content which enables the pottery to retain heat or remain cool.
Bizen -Yaki reflects the Japanese artistic sensibility emphasising inner beauty and subtlety.
