A sublime set of five Nabeshima plates made during the Edo period (1615-1868) dating from around 1840.

Nabeshima porcelain is world-known for its high level of quality. At the end of the 17th century, the Nabeshima clan who ruled the Saga domain, located near Arita, moved the kiln they were patronizing deep into the mountains, in the Okawachiyama village, where it could difficultly be accessed...

A very interesting chawan (tea bowl) dating from the Edo period (1615-1868) with a wonderful glaze applied in a way that creates a multidimensional keshiki (landscape).

The bowl was entirely shaped by hand, without the help of a potter's wheel, and in some places the fingerprints of the artist can be seen. Although it looks as though the chawan was made with Bizen clay, the fact that it is partly veiled in glaze, which is unusual in that tradition, add to the mystery of its provenance...

In my humble opinion, great Mishima bowls are few and far between, but this particular one, dating from the first part of the Joseon dynasty (1392-1897), is truly exceptional. It is in very good condition considered its age, and the play of different shades on the finely crackled white and celadon glazes make it a very attractive vessel. It is a sublime example of the genre.

Mishima is the Japanese name for this kind of pottery decorated with a white slip, covered by a pale-bluish glaze...

An interesting plate made in the Kenzan style and dating from the end of the Edo period (1615-1868). The plate is decorated with a stylized landscape painted under a transparent milky glaze, which makes it look a soft pinkish-grey. In that picture, which borrows Kenzan's brush, a brook runs through an irises scattered meadow...

An interesting bowl dating from the Goryeo (or Koryo) dynasty (918-1392).

The wobbling shape, scars from the firing and finely crackled glaze are features that make this bowl a very attractive vessel. They point to a humble beginning yet give the vessel nobility in the Japanese world of wabi-sabi, where age, its marks and harmonious imperfections are revered.
