The creator of this extraordinary work, Shibuya Deishi, is best known for his works of “Oni-hagi”—typically made with rough clay and heavy dripping glazes. This piece by contrast seems delicately crafted and has a very soft and warm quality to it. The outside is covered with overlapping molded flower petals done in an almond glaze with ivory accents at the tips of each petal.

Winner of many local and international awards (including the 18th Modern Applied Fine Arts Exhibition), Deishi now serves as the Chairman of the Hagi Traditional Industrial Association. His kiln, in the town of Hagi, is a traditional wood-fired nobori-gama and he uses a Korean-style kick wheel to hand-mold each piece. Most of Deishi’s works are impressed with his Deishi seal but recently he has started to produce some works with his new name “Mingetsu” impressed upon them. The reason for the name change is in order for his son to be able to take over the name “Deishi” in due course and become Shibuya Deishi II.

This piece is 8.3 inches in diameter (21 cm) and stands 4.7 inches tall (12 cm). It bears the artist’s seal on the base and comes with its own signed tomobako which also bears the artist’s seal. In very good condition, it appears to have been made fairly recently, possibly within the last 20 years. International EMS shipping with insurance is included in the price.
