This petite vase, with its charming basket-like form, showcases the sangiri pattern, capturing the essence of fire's dance with clay. "San" hints at the kiln's wall, where ash accumulates transforming pieces into shades of grayish or blackish brown, depending on their exposure to fire and ash. Each firing yields distinct patterns, making every vase a one-of-a-kind art piece.

A beautiful item to decorate a room with seasonal flowers or display it as a home decor item. 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.

About BIZAN 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.
