A very interesting set of three soapstone seals dating from the Chinese Qing dynasty (1644-1912). Each seal is finely decorated with figures of Buddhist monks (maybe the same character on each stone). The first one seems to be losing his hat to the wind. The second one has caught it (or is letting it go away; having and not having at the same time), and the third one is sitting under a tree...

A very splendid set of 5 mukozuke (cups to serve dishes during the Japanese tea ceremony) made by one of Mino's master potters: Kato Juemon (1894-1974). The set is made in the Oribe style of pottery, a more than 400 year old tradition.

Kato Juemon's son, Kato Koemon, born in 1937, is also a potter.

I will be glad to answer any question you might have.

The set is in very good condition. As can be seen on picture 11, there is a small dent in one foot of one of the mukozuke...

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. Inscriptions figure on both the front and the back of the plate.

Ogata Kenzan (1663 Kyoto – 1743 Edo), was a genius ceramic artist and designer who took the worl...

First modeled after Chinese Yueh ware, Korean celadons have come to be known as some of the best of the genre, with original designs and a high level of craftsmanship, attained around the 11th century, that made them very popular, especially with Japanese tea practitioners of the 16t...
