Hozan Kiln Hidasuki and Goma Bizen Ware Beer Tumbler Pair
This is a pair of Bizen Ware beer tumblers with patterns called "Hidasuki" and “Goma.” The coarse texture, exquisite colors and patterns produced by the kiln's flames is a remarkable example of Bizen Ware, "the art of clay and fire".
This "Hidasuki" pattern is made when the work is wrapped in straw and placed in a kiln with a cover called a "Saya," and fired in a place away from direct heat. It becomes light brown in color throughout and scarlet in the areas where the straw is wrapped. It is very popular because of the contrast between those vivid colors. Also during the process, the ash sometimes creates a pattern resembling "Goma (sesame)," on the surface. Each firing results in a different pattern, making each piece a unique work of art.
Delivered in a wooden box which makes it a perfect gift for your loved ones.
This beer tumbler feels lighter than it looks. Pouring cold beer into it makes it pleasantly cool. At the same time, the soft, earthy texture of the stoneware gives it a warm impression.
This tumbler has a wide diameter, ensuring that your nose is fully covered when you drink. It is recommended for those who want to experience the rich aroma distinctly. The stoneware tumbler also makes the bubbles fine, creamy and soft on the palate.
It is perfect for enjoying weighty and robust beers, as well as beers with a sharp taste. It is ideal for those moments when you want to take a hearty gulp of beer.

"The Art of the Clay and Fire"

Bizen Ware is called "the art of clay and fire" for the exquisite colors and patterns produced by the kiln's flames, and is characterized by its minimalist, "wabi-sabi" design.
