LARGE IGA CHAWAN BY KISHIMOTO KENNIN
Large medieval style Iga chawan by Kishimoto Kennin.This well addressed chawan has a variety of Iga characteristics from running ash and bidoro to a rich hi-iro fire color that Kishimoto is known for. This classical Kishimoto Iga chawan is well articulated with movement that mimics the lip; the bowl feels wonderful in the hand.

Kishimoto has been making pots since the early 1950ís and is well know for a wide variety of wares that he has made including Shigaraki, Iga, Iga-Oribe, celadon and Ki-Seto. He has mastered each style he has turned his attention to and is certainly one of the most important Japanese potters of the Showa and Heisei eras. Well displayed, exhibited and published, Kishimoto is highly collected in Japan and the west. His chawan sell for 800,000 yen currently and are only likely to get more expensive and harder to find.

In excellent, unused condition and in its original signed box.

14 x 9.6 cm though larger in presence than its size implies
