This is a Bizen Ware teapot with a pattern called "Sangiri". 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". 

The "San" in Sangiri refers to the wall inside the kiln. The work placed on the side of the wall where ash tends to accumulate is covered with ash from the pine wood, and the part of the work not directly exposed to the fire reacts with the ash, turning it grayish brown or blackish brown. Each firing results in a different pattern, making each piece a unique work of art.

The capacity is 300ml(10.1oz), which is enough to fill 2 cups of tea.

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 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.

About BIZEN ware
"The Art of the Clay and Fire"

Bizen Ware is a traditional stoneware produced in the Ibe 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.

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.
