bizen tokkuri sake flask bottle

Sake bottle | Ko-Bizen

SKU: 2481

The characteristic feature of Bizen is that it is high-fired unglazed stoneware which gives expression to the clay itself. In the kiln, the flames naturally bring about changes on the vessel surface, creating markings called hidasuki (fire cord), enokihada (yellowish hackberry texture), and so on. - (Source: A Chanoyu vocabulary, p. 19.)
