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 itself
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.
Bizen ware improves over time when used daily.
Please enjoy its increasing beauty as
your chosen piece finds a place in your loving home.
