Although reminiscent of very old Tamba, this is likely a salt jar from Luzon, an area with a very long trade history with Japan. It was purchased as part of a collection of tea ceramics. The deeply scored lines and crosshatching provide a tactile playground for the hands and eyes. The irregular shaped and slight sag in the lip add a sense of immediacy, and the richly glistening caramel glaze is superb, leading to drips around the base...

A very rare Edo period Ao-Bizen (Blue Bizen) Koro in the shape of Hotei leaning against his bag, the sack forming the basin of the incense burner. What a tremendous expression! A label inside the ancient Jindai-sugi age blackened cedar box reads Bizen-yaki Hotei Go-Koro, Nishi-no-Maru yori and is followed by the date Tenpo 5 (1835) fifth month and signed Chitsuryo (?) The fact it was stored in the Nishi-no-Maru would indicate it was part of a castle or great palace inventory...

A pottery kogo - covered box - in the shape of a stork with it's wings folded and legs under it's body. It appears to be resting in its nest - possibly a female guarding her eggs. The stork has the tell tale black tail feathers than can be seen in hundreds of photos.

A pair of unique three part tokkuri by Taniguchi Chojiro consisting of a top, which turned upside down forms the cup, a central ring on which the cup rests, and the bottle, which, when assembled, make the form of a temple bell. These are made after the infamous bell of Hokoji Temple which provided (a rather lame) excuse for Tokugawa Ieyasu to crush the Toyotomi family and claim the country for his own, therefore beginning the Tokugawa Dynasty which ruled Japan for over 250 years. This is seen ...
