Jose Parla Discovers Bizen Ware
World renown artist Jose Parla takes us on a brief journey, discovering the art of Bizen ware, a type of Japanese pottery most identifiable by its ironlike hardness,
reddish brown color, absence of glaze, and markings resulting from wood-burning kiln firing. Because of the similarities between Parla’s use of rustic colors and the ancient pottery techniques, the natural connection seemed intriguing. A bit more about Bizen ware as well as a Parla created piece can be found at his official honeyee blog.
