What does this mean?

Hello Molly,

Based on the images, this is:

A set of remarkable Bizen ware, vintage Japanese pottery jars and plates. Bizen ware is a form of pottery produced in the area around the city of Bizen in Okayama prefecture. Bizen ware is one of Japan's Six Ancient Kilns. Together with Shigaraki, Tamba, Echizen, Seto and Tokoname, Bizen ware is considered to be one of the most outstanding Japanese kilns with traditions that remain to this day. Bizen ware has a unique manufacturing method as it does not use glaze.

Generally, baked pottery is given luster and water-resistance by coating it with glaze, but since Bizen ware does not use glaze, the lack of luster gives a simple, rustic appearance. Glaze is also normally used when applying designs, but since this is not a step involved in the production of Bizen ware, each individual work remains different and unique, which is another charm of Bizen ware.

Good condition.

Price listed is for each object.
