This is a tea bowl of Japanese SHIGARAKI pottery ware. This was made about 30 years ago. SHIGARAKI is the pottery of Shiga Prefecture in Japan.
It is chosen as one of the oldest 6 potterys in Japan. Shigaraki, Bizen, Iga etc are very popular as pottery of Japanese WABI-SABI.
This amazing tea bowl has a very good natural glaze. It presents a lovely sense of view, touch and hold in the hands. It is appropriate SHIGARAKI.
The potter's name is Rakusai Takahashi 4th. (1925-living). His seal is upon the bowl.
He is a potter who has got very high evaluation. His name has been inherited from generation to generation. He inherited skill and a name from the father of the 3rd. generation.
He is very very famous potter in Japan. The original wood box is part of our offer.
Items of Rakusai Takahashi are very quickly sold out on trocadero. So take the chance.
