The shape of water with Hidasuki

緋襷纏う水の形

“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.

備前焼の特徴である「緋色の襷模様」から名付けられた、2色のウォーターカラフェ「hiiro」。備前焼の伝統を受け継ぐDAIKURAと、プロダクトデザイナー辰野しずかさんによって作られた。古くから「備前水がま、水が腐らぬ」という言い伝えがあり、一昼夜おくだけで、水がまろやかに美味しくなる。シンプルな中に、緋襷ならではの自然の装いが感じられるデザイン。使い込むほどに味わいが増すカラフェに仕上がっている。

緋襷(ひだすき)

備前焼の模様の一つ。焼き物を置く棚板や他の焼き物に触れないように、稲藁を巻く。これにより、藁の接触部分が赤く発色し、独特の模様を生み出す。
