A lobed rounded form covered in a smattering of ash by Sugimoto Sadamitsu and enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Shigaraki Hanaire. Beginning from a round base, Sadamitsu has indented and creased the sides of this vase to form three faces, but allowed the top to remain a relatively intact circle.

A seminal work by Wakao Toshisada adorned with the quintessential elements of this artists work, a moon in gold over silver flowers on a gray Nezumi-Shino fold-textured ground.  It comes in the original signed wooden box titled very simply Nezumi Shino Hanaike.  Although I am not a botanist, I imagine the yu-gao (bottle gourd flower, called the face of evening in Japanese) opening to reveal its splendor to the rising moon, visible through the drying autumn grasses.  A superb examp...

Spectacular kiln affects dapple this playful form by artist Sugimoto Sadamitsu enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Iga Hanire.  Ash has encrusted the base so thickly he has had to grind it off, this happens when the piece gets buried up to a point in the ash on the kiln flooror up against a wall, and the works come up together this cooled encrustation.  That combines with the natural sunrise colors or “Hi-iro” of the clay, and the glassy green beads wrapping around the jocula...

Rich and Charred, the Ochre glaze has a texture which delights the bearer on this vessel by Living National Treasure Kato Kozo enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Kiseto Hanaire. Unlike the more monotonous works typical of Ki-seto, this has been darkened by ash and fire, testament to the storms in the kiln, and reminiscent of that rugged strip from which Mino-ware is born sandwiched between the violent coast and volcanic interior of central Japan...

The style is taken from Momoyama era works, -tweaked a little with typical Kennin flare, and looks as if it just stepped from the kiln goin “What do you think?”
