HOZAN KILN GOMA BIZEN WARE JAPANESE TEACUP PAIR
$112.00

Hozan Kiln Goma Bizen Ware Japanese Teacup Pair

USD $112

This is a Bizen Ware teacup with a pattern called "Goma(sesame)." 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 pattern is called "Goma", because the pine wood used to fire the kiln turns to ash, which adheres to the work and gives it a pattern that looks like a sprinkling of sesame (=Goma) seeds. Each firing results in a different pattern, making each piece a unique work of art.

Delivered in a wooden box, it makes a perfect gift for your loved ones.

Bizen Ware is a traditional stoneware produced in the Inbe 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 Ware kiln located in Imbe, Bizen City. In the 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.
