BIZEN - POTTERY.
es: BIZEN - CERÁMICA
Bizen pottery is Japanese and named after the village of Imbe in the province known in the past as Bizen. The method started in medieval times in Japan and is still functioning in the same way today. Because of the clay composition, work is fired slowly over a long period of time. It is very strong, reddish brown in color and with no glaze. The kilns are fired by wood, the pots are stacked with rice, straw and other products and the combustion during firing causes these to form different textures and markings on the finished work.
