A captivating piece described on the box as “aka e sakana bun” which can be loosely translated as, Depiction of Fish with Red Overglaze. Okuda (1920-1999) was a student of both Hamada Shoji and Kawaii Kanjiro and his kiln was visited by a number of well-known artists including the likes of Bernard Leach. A distinctive style following the mingei or, “folk craft,” movement of the mid-20th century, this piece is a delight for the eyes and functional in the hand.

The bowl is 4.7 inches in diameter (12cm) and 2.8 inches tall (7cm) . It comes with a signed tomobako with the artists seal.
