Tokkuri by Living National Treasure Tamura Koichi
The mouth of this Tetsu-yu Tokkuri by Ningen-kokuho Tamura Koichi (1918-1987) has been perfectly formed to pour from the best side, a very slight draw to the lip above the dashes of iron and black. It is 12.5 cm (5 inches) tall and in excellent condition, enclosed in the original signed wooden box.
Koichi graduated from the Tokyo University of Fine arts Where he later taught), and took up an apprenticeship under (later) Living National Treasure Tomimoto Kenkichi. He established his own kiln in Tochigi prefecture, 1953. He was awarded the JCS (Japan Ceramics Society) award in 1956, and the JCS gold award, perhaps Japans most prestigious pottery prizes, in 1975. With a very impressive career both domestic and international, Koichi too was designated a Living National Treasure for work with iron glaze the year before his death, 1986. Works are held in the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo; National Museum of Modern Art Kyoto, Brooklyn Museum and the British Museum among many others.
