Hikidashi - Kuro. In Japanese hikidashi means “a pull-out drawer” and the term first came into use at Mino kilns in the 16th century to describe individual pieces that were pulled out of the wood kiln at the peak of firing to gauge if the batch was ready. The rapid cooling of such pieces often creates dramatic effects, with the most noted being rich varieties of deep black. Today this practice has fallen out of use and and only a handful of master potters continue its practice.
Ryotaro Kato was born into a potter's family with 220 years of history. His late grandfather Takuo Kato (1917 - 2005) was awarded the title of Japanese Living National Treasure and Ryotaro grew up immersed in the traditional skills and culture of pottery.
