This enchanting hanaire (vase) is a Kato Shuntei III production. It was made at his kiln Shuntei-gama (Shuntei kiln) in the city of Seto in central Japan. It is made in the Ki-seto (yellow seto) style. Seto pottery has a more than 400-year-old history. It was born in the ancient province of Mino (current Aichi prefecture) and is part of a rich tradition of many styles among which are oribe and shino also.
Kato Shuntei was born in 1960 and is the third bearer of the name Shuntei. He inherited the name in 1995 from his father (1927-1995) who was a recognized potter as well as his uncle Kato Shunto (1916-2005). This splendid vase, which shows serene autumnal tones and soothing forms, conveys the maturity of that tradition and the prowess of its creator, influenced by a family dedicated to preserving a high level of craftsmanship.

The hanaire is signed and in excellent condition. It will be shipped in its tomobako (companion box), which bears the seal of the Shuntei kiln.
