The technique for producing “hidasuki” motifs involves firing an object wrapped in straw, which leaves orange motifs on the clay when it is fired in an oxidizing atmosphere. However, by firing this object in reduction, the artisan Yoshimoto Atsuo has created a grey cup with black motifs. The use of reduction firing is inspired by antique sueki ceramics and early bizen-yaki pottery, in other words, from the Heian Period.
