A dazzling Hagi-ware bowl with cherry petal and earthen tones made by one of Japan's great potters. The 14th potter of the Sakakura line of potters Sakakura Shinbei XIV (1917-1975) was designated an important human cultural treasure of Yamaguchi prefecture in 1972. For those interested, videos produced by NHK are available online detailing the work of the current Sakakura Shinbei XV, the kiln, and the surrounding estate.

This piece is 5.7 inches in diameter (14.5cm) and 3 inches tall (7.6cm). It bears the artists seal on its base and comes with a signed tomobako, an insert in Japanese detailing the Sakakura line of potters, and wrapped in a blue cloth. The bowl is in very good condition. Shipping included in price.
