Bay Bridge Shino Chawan by Shohachi Taniguchi

Taniguchi Shohachi (1928-) is a Shino, Oribe, and Seto artist based in Seto City, Aichi Prefecture. Shohachi has submitted works to the Nitten for 10 times, and received numerous awards from various exhibitions and shows for Japanese potters. One work, known as Un, was submitted to the Nitten in 1975 became part of the permanent collection at Seto City's collection of ceramics and pottery. In 1979, Shohachi work's were considered in Italy's ceramic competition, The Faenza Competition.

The work is based on the yearly theme established by His Majesty the Emperor of Japan for the annual poetry reading or Wakakai. During one year, the theme was bridge and Shohachi has created a tea bowl for chanoyu utilizing the motif of a bridge. The bridge reminds those in the United States, (for San Franciscans) the view of the Golden Gate Bridge or Bay Bridge. (For those in New York) The George Washington Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge, or similar bridges that represents the city.

The bowl would be perfect for those who wish to have a tea gathering in honor of a bridge, reminding one of a city such as San Francisco or New York or those who enjoy bridges.

Age: late 20th century.
