Pink and gray hues are highlighted in the charred shino glaze on this tapering form by Hayashi Shotaro enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Manyosai Hanaire. It is 8 inches (21 cm) tall and in fine condition. This Manyosai style is one of his signature pieces, a glaze he developed himself, and highlights of pink are especially prized.
Shotaro is one of Japans true genius potters, moving far beyond tradition, glaze research and firing technique, to a place of inception. He first began with a 7 year apprenticeship under his older brother Kotaro, ending when he established his own kiln in 1974. Since then his list of exhibitions and awards has been amazing, including the Nihon Dento Kogei Ten (National Traditional Arts and Crafts Exhibition), Governors Prize and five times winner of Best of Show at the Asahi Togei Ten (Asahi Ceramics Exhibition), and Best of Show at Gifu Prefectural Exhibition among many others.
