Japanese Vintage Bizen Ware Pottery Sake Cup

Vintage Japanese wood fired pottery sake cup (Guinomi) of Bizen ware (Bizen yaki). Bizen ware (Bizen-yaki) is a type of Japanese pottery traditionally from Bizen province, presently a part of Okayama prefecture.

 

Made of iron rich clay. The dynamic textures and colors are created naturally by the clay, fire and ash. The coloration and pattern is called Goma (Sesame seeds) type.

Bizen is characterized by significant hardness due to high temperature firing; its earthen-like, reddish-brown color; absence of glaze, although it may contain traces of molten ash resembling glaze; and markings resulting from wood-burning kiln firing
