Hi, I'm Taiwanese who living in Bizen city, Okayama. I love travel and meet people from all over the world. I've learned how to make Bizen ware(備前焼, Bizenyaki)for one year, so I know much about Bizen ware. Bizen ware is put in the kiln unglazed, but due to the effects of the 7 to 10-day wood firing, reaching temperatures of approximately 1250℃(2282℉), becomes naturally glazed with wood ash or acquires various colors. Bizen ware is simple and unassuming in form but has noble quality. Come to make the only one Bizen ware in the world for your own!
