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 small-volume yusamashi matches a shiboridashi by Nobuhara Katsushi, which is also available on Thés du Japon. Naturally, it is perfect for cooling the water to be used for low-volume infusions: sencha for one person, or gyokuro.
