Bizen-yaki Japanese Stoneware Cup

2 items left

Bizen-yaki pottery is a perfect + unique combination of timeless design and the oldest form of Japanese artistry. Bizen-yaki stoneware cups take a long time to finish. Once the kiln is fired, it has to be kept burning for one to two weeks non-stop, feeding it new fire wood every few minutes. This difficult and exhausting process leads to artisans firing their kilns only once or twice a year.

Each cup is a one-of-a-kind piece of art, with the appearance varying from grey to smooth copper and brown. The unique finish, called "Sangiri" is achieved through a technique in which ash is added close to the pottery in the firing process.
