Modern Shino Chawan Tea Bowl by Kishimoto Kennin
Bold iron patterns decorate the front of this large Shino bowl by contemporary Pottery master Kishimoto Kennin enclosed in the original signed wooden box. The smooth white glaze has wide fractures, apparent on close observation, with a smattering of su-ana pinholes about the body. Blue-white in the center, there are pinkish highlights on the edges. The bowl is 5-1/2 inches (14 cm) diameter, 3-1/2 inches (9 cm) to the rim and in excellent condition. Kennin has been working with clay since the 1950s, devouring styles along the way. Seto, Oribe, Shino, Tenmoku, Iga and Celadon, all very different approaches which he masters one at a time, extending his unique view of the arts to new realms, and moving on to the next challenge when his appetite and personal genius has been satiated. He was exhibited and prized at the National Japanese Crafts Exhibition (Nihon Dento Kogei Ten), National Ceramics Exhibition (Nihon Togei Ten), Chunichi International Ceramics Exhibition (Chunichi Kokusai Togei Ten) and Asahi Togei Ten among others, and is held in several important international collections. This is part of a collection of Kennin works we have recently acquired.
