Bizen Ware / Water Carafe
Water carafe of Bizen Yaki, which makes water become mild and delicious by just only leaving it all night and all day. There has been a long-standing tradition of saying “Water never rots in Bizen earthenware”. Earthenware of Bizen Yaki was valued for as vessel to store well water until the tap water supply spread. Because of no-glaze, it has permeable small invisible holes which does not pass water through but does oxygen through. That’s why, water never rots inside since long time ago.
