Square bizen ware plates in a sumikiri design with cut diagonal corners.

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 specialises in bizen ware fired these plates for 10 days in a wood fired kiln and the nature of the bizen clay, position of the plates in the kiln and temperature all contribute to making each plate unique.
