Description

Cylindrical shaped Bizen-yaki vase. The vase narrows from the vase, flares outwards to create a semi-spherical shape where two handles are attached, then narrows to flare outwards at the neck. Ribbing is visible at the semi-spherical flare where the handles attach. The vase is primarily a rust-red color with greys, browns, and tans near the vase. The colors are a result of the bizen-yaki firing.
