Mizubachi, Traditional Japanese water pots
These antique water pots, Mizubachi (水鉢) in Japanese, are made of glazed terracotta. Traditionally they are used as ponds, filled with water, plants and even fish. In the world of Bonsai Mizubachi are used to store water that is used for watering the trees. On the bottomside there is often a hole so water can easily be refreshed. This hole can be closed with a cork.
A Mizubachi can also be used as an authentic flower pot, instead of filling it up with water.
