Bizen Mukozuke set by Shibaoka Koichi
sold

This wonderful set of 5 mukozuke was made by a Bizen potter named Shibaoka Koichi. Mukozuke are small dishes used to serve refined food during a Japanese tea ceremony. These are made in the Bizen style of pottery, a more than one thousand year old tradition, characterized by a usually reddish, strong ironlike body, which is traditionally unglazed but may feature ash glaze from wood firing.

Shibaoka Koichi was born in Okayama prefecture in 1941. He studied Bizen pottery with one of its masters, Isezaki Mitsuru, from 1967, and established his own kiln in 1971. He is the recipient of several awards and a member of the Nihon Kogeikai (Japan Traditional Crafts Association).
