Clay is the lifeblood of Bizen, it has long been thought. Bizen employs the most fine-textured clay among the so-called Six Ancient Kilns. Because Bizen clay cannot withstand sudden changes in temperature, firing temperatures need to be raised very slowly. Bizen clay roughly falls under yama-tsuchi (lit. mountain clay) and ta-tsuchi (paddy clay). The latter is stickier and more malleable, and fires to a finish that is widely considered the best in terms of allowing the intrinsic character of the clay shine through. Of course, not all Bizen artists use what is considered top-quality clay, but serious engagement with clay still remains a major preoccupation for many, one of whom is Koichiro Isezaki, a ceramicist who was born into a family of Bizen potters.
