Large Shigaraki Chozara Platter by Koyama Kiyoko
Sold, Thank you!

A large and lovely platter by Koyama Kiyoko enclosed in the original signed wooden box.  The wavelike surface traps the thick crystalline ash glaze in deep green pools, the edges left raw and exposed.  The excessive amount of glaze is typical of this artists work, and she is known for firing her kiln for up to 14 days straight.  The dish is roughly 1 foot (30 cm) square and in excellent condition.  Kiyoko was the subject of the film Hi-Bi (2005) and is the pioneering female wood firing artist in Japan. Born in Sasebo, Nagasakin in 1938, she went to Shigaraki village, home of one of Japans Six Ancient Kilns (RokkoGama).  There she studied the traditional techniques,, and bore the brunt of centuries of discrimination against women.  Through it all she persevered to become one of the most highly sought of Shigaraki potters. It is a true pleasure to be able to offer this piece.
