Bizen pottery is put in a burning kiln unglazed but aquires a natural ash glaze and subdued shadings. The sake bottles made by Bizen pottery keep Japanese sake good taste, a vase made by Bizen pottery keep flower fresh and Bizen's beer-mug make a lot of small bubbles inside the mug and make beer good taste.
MY ancestor, Kimura was one of 6 families who were designated to be the sole makers of Bizen pottery by Lord Ikeda at the Edo period.
While I took the lessons in the tea ceremony and appreciated the tea set (many of which were Bizen ware) I had interests in Bizen pottery.
I was trained by Hikaru Shimamura, a great master of Bizen pottery.
