A splendid tokkuri (sake pouring vessel) made by a Bizen potter named Buyo Shin, born in 1936.
Bizen pottery is a more than one thousand year old tradition, characterized by a usually reddish, strong ironlike body, which is traditionally unglazed but may feature ash glaze from wood firing.
After having studied with famous potter Fujiwara Rakuzan (1910-1996), Buyo Shin established his kiln in the city of Bizen in 1968.
