where the magic happens

Pottery Artist Ritsuko Moore shares her Bizen Yaki experimental work. She wraps her pieces with rice straw (top left), and she loads them to the Noborigama kiln (bottom left). Full of curiosity and excitement, their new appearance is revealed after 70 hours (right).  As you see, the rice straw wrap remains in the final presentation as a dark brown stain. This is the natural organic color of rice straw!
