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 colors 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.
