Since they are large, these Bizen-yaki cups by Nobuhara Katsushi are perfect for teas prepared in large quantity, such as Hôji-cha.
Their decoration, typical of Bizenware and even more of Nobuhara Katsushi's powerful style, is of course achieved using no glaze. The colours and textures all result from firing the cups in a kiln at 1300°C (2372°F). In particular, the yellow parts come from melted ashes, since the objects were placed in the kiln very close to the sources of heat. This technique is known as "goma."
