Japanese Karatsu Kogo by Nakazato Shigetoshi
Sold. Thank you.

Fine E-garatsu (painted Karatsu) kogo (incense container) by the prominent potter Nakazato Shigetoshi, decorated in underglaze iron with a stylized pine tree on the top and blades of grass on the sides, over a body in rough Karatsu clay.
The condition of the kogo is perfect. It is marked under the base, and will come enclosed in its original wooden box, with a certificate from Sangen-gama, Nakazato's kiln.
Dimensions: about 6.2 cm (2.4 in) in diameter, 3.2 cm (1.3 in) in height
Nakazato Shigetoshi (1930 - ) was born in a potter's family dating back to the early times of Karatsu pottery (the only one still active today), and is the son of Nakazato Taroemon XII, designated a Living National Treasure in 1976. Nakazato Shigetoshi opened his own kiln, Sangen-gama, in Karatsu, in 1973. He participated in many exhibitions, such as the Nitten (Japan Fine Arts Exhibition), where his works were accepted for the first time in 1952, and received several awards, such as the Saga Prefecture Cultural Award in 1985. He became a trustee of Nitten in 1986.
