Shigaraki Vase by Tani Seiuemon
A spectacular Shigaraki vase by Tani Seiuemon (b. 1913) enclosed in the original signed wooden box. Huge chunks of ash cling to the front of this Shigaraki vase, the broken and melted rim has fallen and lies embedded on the shoulder. Shinshoku wares like this Shigaraki piece, where the fire has eroded but not destroyed the work, are highly prized fortheir wabi-sabi. The blackened and charred clay is covered with rivulets of green glass ash glaze; a spectacular combination. The vase is 11 inches (29 cm) tall, 6 inches (15 cm) diameter and in fine condition. Born in Shigaraki-cho, Seiuemon was interested from his youth in the local pottery, and worked long at excavation and research into ancient kiln practices. He opened his own half submerged kiln in 1970, concentrating on Ko-Shigaraki style wares emphasizing ash glaze effects. His research was instrumental in the revival of Shigaraki pottery.
