This attractive e-Shino bowl (“e†meaning picture) bears a pine-needle motif on the front surrounded by fields of dazzling ochre and white.

Fired in the kilns of Kato Kageaki (1899-1972), this Shino bowl is from one of the oldest traditions in Japanese pottery. Kageyaki was the 12th generation of Mino potters known for their distinctive styles of Shino and Oribe pottery. He was a great potter in his own right who was designated as a Human Intangible Cultural Treasure in 1957 by Gifu prefecture and who has won a number of prizes and received wide recognition for his accomplishments.

This piece is 5.1 inches (13cm) in diameter and 3.4 inches (8.6cm) tall. It comes with a signed tomobako with a small black seal on the bottom corner of the box, a white cloth inside bearing a red inkan mark, and an insert in Japanese detailing the Mino-potter line. The piece itself bears the artists carved signature.
