Based on the method of firing Bizen ware pottery (Bizen-yaki) which is characterized by baking Bizen earth at a high temperature without using glaze, this jet-black pottery was creating by mixing pigments. In addition to the baking pattern which is characteristic of Bizen firing, the contrast change due to fine light /moisture adjustment creates the unique texture. We are looking forward to new Bizen-yaki applications that allow it to be transformed from the “one-of-a-kind Bizen-yaki as a work of art” into a product material that is homogeneous and reproduceable.
