Hagi Haikaburi Mizusashi (萩灰被水指)
This is the Hagi ware crafted by TAMAMURA, Toyo (玉村登陽).
Firing in the climbing kiln.
It is mizusashi container for fresh-water in Japanese tea ceremony.
Ashes and glaze can be melted together in the kiln and haikaburi pattern appeared with dignified color.
He used the clay called daido-tsuchi because it enables us to see the hakiburi design well.
