Shigaraki ware Oshaberiguchi by Sugimoto Sadamitsu
The unusual large mouth of this mizusashi is described in Japanese as oshaberiguchi or a talkative mouth. One does not find much conversation during a tea gathering, yet a tea gathering is also a way to socialize and chat with others to get to know people and enjoy a bowl of tea.

The work is by the noted artist, Sadamitsu Sugimoto (1935~). Sugimoto's works are in noted collections of Japanese art such as the Clark Center of Japanese Art and Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Sugimoto centers his works on reviving and preserving the designs and styles used in Momoyama period tea utensils and giving them a modern interpretation.

The mizusashi comes with a tomobako, with the artist's signature on the bottom of the box.


Size: Diameter 5.5" height: 4.75"-5"
