Modern Celadon Chawan Tea Bowl by Kishimoto Kennin
A fine deeply fissured Seiji Bakuhen Tenmoku bowl by contemporary artist Kishimoto Kennin enclosed in the original signed wooden box. The glaze appears to be multiple layered transparent green, shattered like jade, a startling effect actually. The bowl is in the traditional Chinese form called Tenmoku, with a small delicate foot of dark clay. It is signed inside the wari-kodai. The Shifuku wrapping cloth is actually embroidered with the artists name. The bowl is nearly 6 inches (15.5 cm) diameter, 2-3/4 inches (7 cm) tall and in excellent condition. Kennin has been working with clay since the 1950s, devouring styles along the way. Seto, Oribe, 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.
