A wonderful hanaire (vase) made by a Bizen potter named Sakakibara Kiyoto, born in 1941.
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.
Sakakibara Kiyoto is a recognized Bizen potter. His kiln, located in the village of Inbe (Okayama prefecture) is called Tenjin-gama. His work has been exhibited at Japan Traditional Art Crafts Exhibitions and famous venues like the Mitsukoshi department store in Nihonbashi, Tokyo.
