Nezumi Shino Hanaire by Kato Shuntei II
Offers Welcome!

An attractive hanaire (vase) made by a master potter named Kato Shuntei (1927-1995), a second generation potter who inherited the name from his father in 1961. Basing his work on rather traditional shapes and techniques, he became a prominent Seto ware potter, along with his younger brother Kato Shunto. He received several prices in important exhibitions, such as the Asahi Togei-ten (Asahi Ceramics Exhibition) and the Nihon Dento Kogei-ten (Japan Traditional Arts and Crafts Exhibition). He also represented Aichi Prefecture at the Osaka World Fair in 1970.

This particular piece is made in the shino style of pottery. The appellation of the glaze, nezumi (mouse in Japanese), is a reference to its grey color. The lemon-skin (yuzu hada) texture of the glaze is a recognizable feature on Shino pottery and a treat to its fans.

Please let me know if you have some questions.

The hanaire is in excellent condition and will be shipped in a signed wooden box.
