Bizen Ceramic is from Okayama prefecture in Japan.
It is one of six oldest kilns in Japan. (Seto, Shigaraki, Tamba, Echigo, Tokoname and Bizen)
Bizen is famous for having special kind of clay, coming from deep inside of rice field mixed with mountain clay and black clay. It is then rested for a few months to 10years.
It is famous for not using the glaze but creating beautiful individual patterns by applying different kind of fire.
Red patterns on Hidasugi have been created by placing the ear of rice around the pottery, and bake them without direct fire. Chemical reaction creates this lovely organic pattern.
Far infrared rays and air bubbles in Bizen Ceramic make sake to be smoother and rounder. Water inside Bizen ware is said to never goes off.
Modern Version of Vizen Hidasugi, can be also used as a shot glass. It becomes shinier as used and it will show how much it has been cared for over time.
