Discover the allure of rustic simplicity with this large, round Bizen ware vase. This piece, understated in its design, radiates a unique charm through its soft, yellow-tinged hue.

A beautiful item to decorate a room with seasonal flowers or branches, it adorns with its rustic hues. Also, it can be placed on your dining table or on a hallway side table to decorate. The deep, multi-colored earth tones blend in well in a room with a natural theme or even a stylish contemporary vibe. Turn the vase around and find the color and shade that fits the flower you are arranging or the decor of where you are placing it. 

The distinctive coloration results from the settling of pine wood ash, utilized as fuel in the kiln, which graces the upper portion of the vase with random yellow speckles dotting the surface, creating a pattern known as goma, or "sesame."

Each firing yields distinct patterns, making every vase a one-of-a-kind art piece. And coated with nature’s glaze, Bizen ware vases carry an earthy texture that purifies water, extending the life of your flowers.

Bizen ware is a traditional stoneware produced in the Imbe area of Okayama Prefecture. It is one of the oldest ceramics in Japan, and is made using the yakishime technique, in which pieces are fired at high temperatures without glaze to make them durable and water-resistant. 

Hozan Kiln is a long-established Bizen pottery kiln located in Imbe, Bizen City, the hometown of Bizen ware. For Bizen ware, there were six families that had been under the protection of the shogunate (government) since the 17th century. Hozan Kiln is known as one of them and continues to this day as the legitimate successor of Bizen ware.

"The Art of the Clay and Fire"
