|A large rectangular platter covered in deeply fissured rust red with diagonal runs of paler thick color by Shigeya Iwabuchi (1925-1993) enclosed in the original signed wooden box. A simple slab of clay, 1 inch (2.2 cm) thick, curled up in the corners and stamped on the base. A swatch of vibrant iron divides the center. The dish is 16 by 11-1/2 inches (40 x 30 cm) and is in perfect condition. Shigeya was born in 1925 in Kyoto. He graduated the Kyoto Ceramics division of the Kyoto Industrial Research School, and then moved to the ceramics department of the Kyoto University of Art, finally studying under Living National Treasures Kondo Yuzo and Tomimoto Kenkichi. He has been displayed at The Kyoto Municipal Museum of Modern Art, Asahi Togei Ten and consistently at the Nihon Dento Kogei Ten among others. This piece dates circa 1970.|
