Bizen Vase - Large

$1,800.00

 

Bizen work by Hitoshi Sugimoto 

Fired in "Noborigama" a half buried climbing kiln over 1000 Celsius for the course of a week, it's been "Yakishime", so it's no glaze but perfectly sealed by the firing process. Each piece is unique with others. 

While you can find the essence of classic Bizen ware, Morimoto's pieces defy formal categorisation. He challenges imputing his characters, charms to make more contemporary style of Bizen pottery, his pottery. 

He only produces his bizen work once a year or every one and half year .
