Here is a beautiful tsubo (pot) by Watanabe Aiko, a recognized artist and one of the contemporary master potters of Iga. The natural patina of her potteries gives them an attractive antique feel and a noble character.
Watanabe Aiko was born in 1971 in Osaka. She graduated from Kyoto Saga University of Art in 1992 and went on to study Shigaraki pottery. In 2001, she established a kiln in the city of Iga, a historical pottery center, not far from Kyoto. She now has three kilns there and exposes regularly in cities like Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto
The tsubo is signed and in perfect condition (during firing, small stones present in the clay may cause dents, as seen on pictures 8 and 9; these are appreciated by connoisseurs and considered more like natural occurrences than flaws). It will be shipped in a signed wooden box (please allow a few weeks before shipping).
Dimensions: 12.5 x 13 cm (5 x 5.2 in)
