15,000 yen ($138.85 USD)

Bizen ware is unglazed stoneware which has been made in Okayama Prefecture since the 12th century. Typically bizen ware has surfaces that can be a glossy gold, matte orange or iridescent blue-green. Rough, charcoal-like patches are also common. The effects are all produced by sustained, high temperature firings.

Morimoto who specializes in bizen ware fired these pieces for more than a week in the family noborigama. The nature of the bizen clay, position of the plates in the kiln and temperature all contribute to making each piece unique.
