Fujiwara Akira is a young Bizen-yaki potter who, based in Wake, just north of Bizen, works essentially with mountain clays that he digs directly from the areas around his workshop. This clearly sets him aside from most of the Bizen potters, who work with rice paddy clay. He fires his works in anagama and noborigama kilns.

This incredible cup is made from very rough mountain clay and showcases the hikidashi-kuro technique. The cup was taken from the kiln while it was still hot and then cooled rapidly, creating the black effect with silvery touches.
