While hohins, Japanese handleless teapots, are typical bizen-yaki objects, the grey color is much less usual. In fact, the potter-artisan Yoshimoto Astuo uses a reduction firing technique that is inspired by antique Japanese sueki ceramics and thus dates back to the origin of bizen-yaki, almost 1000 years ago.
The “hidasuki” firing technique, which produces orange motifs in reduction, results in black motifs in this case.
