A charming stoneware vase of double gourd form rendered with a mottled cobalt glaze, characteristic for this potter. Spanning the surface, an oni in full trousers reaches out for his dinner, a naïve snail. The oni’s eyes signal his intent…one can only imagine the outcome. Koji’s characteristic cobalt swirl signature mark can be found on the base. This unique vase is in excellent condition. Height: 8.5” Meiji Period, Japan
