Bizen-yaki potter Nobuhara Katsushi is a well-known figure in his field. Most of his production is fired in a wood-burning nobori-gama kiln, but he also produces very fine pottery with “hidasuki” motifs, fired in a gas kiln.
A technique typical of Bizen, “hidasuki” involves wrapping straw around the piece before firing. The straw leaves fire-red marks on the white clay fired in oxidation. This shiboradashi was designed essentially for gyokuro, but also for very high quality sencha infused with very little, comparatively cool water.
This type of object is also perfect for preparing ice-infused tea.
