Blue rivulets drip down over green melding into crystallized white at the base on this Tsubo by Sakuchi Ensen enclosed in the original signed wooden box. A blast of red on one side forms an engaging eye, opposite a firing flaw along the shoulder lends a sense of drama. It is 12 inches (30.5 cm) tall 9-1/2 inches (24 cm) diameter and in fine condition.
Sakuchi Ensen (B. 1922) began on the path of the potter in 1946, searching to create something unusual in the hills of Okayama. His research led him to create this highly decorative yet wildly natural glaze he came to call Hishhoku Nanban Yaki.
