Truly beautiful Japanese antique small earthenware jar from the Shigaraki kiln. Made from the red clay of Lake Biwa, this jar is covered with a thick mineral glaze which has dripped and pooled. It has a lip which has been dimpled for pouring and a wonderful indented area that has been blackened in the firing process. The ash glaze on the lip and on the inside is a lovely green color. An impression of the texture of the material the clay with formed on adds another layer of interest to this jar. Edo Period. Size: 8 1/2" high x 8 1/2" wide.
