Wood-fired in a noborigama kiln, these bizen-yaki by the young potter Baba Takashi have two special characteristics. The first is their black colour, obtained by applying an outer layer of iron-enriched bizen clay. This style is called “kuro-bizen”. The other surprising point is the colour of the “goma” motifs produced by pine ash that landed and melted on the objects while they were being fired.

* These cups are handmade and, since they were wood fired, it is impossible to obtain exactly the same object twice. Thus, the shape, colours and motifs may be noticeably different from those of the cup in the photo.
