The shape of water with Hidasuki


“Hiiro” a new water carafe produced by Daikura derived its name from the same word in Japanese meaning scarlet which is one of the reddish fire pattern of Bizen ware. Daikura inheriting the tradition of Bizen ware together with product designer Tatsuno Shizuka has created a new product with strong traditional values. In Bizen, there is an old Japanese proverb that says, “Water does not spoil in a Bizen water jar”, and it is said that water will taste milder if you let it sit overnight in a Bizen ware. Hiiro has a unique natural look in its simplicity. The more it is used, the more charm it has.

Hidasuki / Reddish fire mark
Hidasuki is one of the patterns of Bizen ware. In order not to touch the shelves and other wares inside the kiln, the individual wares are wrapped in straws. The surface where the straw comes in contact with the clay takes on a reddish hue, thus creating a unique pattern.
