Hidasuki Rice Straw Markings

This quite large floral container was fired in our anagama using rice straw as a separator for three small pots placed inside.  We found that New Zealand rice grass produced these lovely hidasuki colours that are very similar to Japanese hidasuki effects.  We found the New Zealand rice grass growing on our property on the West Coast which was lucky as it does not seem to grow around here.
