Bizen Ware represents a Japanese pottery tradition dating back to the 6th century.
It is distinguished by its reddish brown shades and the glazes created by potters skilled in the use of kilns.
This is a fine example of the combination of grace and simplicity that is the hallmark of Bizen.

- About Bizen ware (High-fired Unglazed Ceramics)
Bizen ware is pottery produced in the district of Inbe in Bizen City, Okayama Prefecture. It is Yakishime earthenware which is fired at high temperature of 1200 to 1250 Celsius degree without any glaze for about ten days.
The nature of earth, placing of the pieces and changes of the temperature in the kiln and ashes and coals used for firing make every Bizen ware piece unique in color and pattern.
Bizen ware is often used and appreciated as flower vases. For it is excellent in air permeability due to its fine air holes on the surface, it keeps cut flowers fresh. Also, it is esteemed for beer glassware. Its small bumps on the surface produce a smooth, creamy head on beer.

- Precautions for Use
Avoid a sudden temperature change. Do not use in the oven nor over direct fire.
