What is Bizen?

It’s a unique style of pottery developed during the Kamakura period, which was about 800 years ago. The Bizen area of what is now Okayama prefecture started making rustic pieces featuring reddish and brownish surfaces dotted with melted ash. Within a few centuries, Bizen became the most popular ceramic in Japan. Famed samurai Lord Toyotomi Hideyoshi loved it for its superior clay, durability, and ability to preserve clean water.

How is it made?

Bizen ware is placed in a kiln unglazed and fired for 8 to 20 days using pine wood, giving it a pine ash glaze and beautifully subdued colors. Like fine leather, Bizen ware ages beautifully, improving in color and texture each time its handled.
