An interesting modern, abstract koro. The compressed sphere with elliptical, off centered opening. A warm, brown temmoku glaze with darker brown glaze dripping from the top and stopping in controlled fashion above a well - continuing to form the unglazed foot in ogee fashion. An artist seal (three or four stylized Kanji characters within an oval) is impressed into the concave base near the foot rim. Very good condition. Some burnt on kiln residue on the foot goes to 'wabi'. A couple small chips off the foot (revealing a flint colored body beneath the brown hagi-like surface) go to 'sabi'. About 4 3/4 inches (12.1 cm) diameter. About 2 3/8 inches (6.03cm) high.
