A spectacular work of charred dark clay by legendary potter Kakurezaki Ryuichi enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled simply Kuro Bizen.  The angular form rises from a triad of block feet flaring out before breaking upon three sharp points at the shoulder, a narrow neck rising with a slight flare.  Dark upon one side clings blue-gray ash separated from the raw dark clay by a thin bead of pale brown color.  Texture, form, color, this one has it all!

A profusion of color descends the granulated surface of this traditional form by legendary potter Nakagawa Jinenbo enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Chosen Karatsu Mimitsuki Hana-ire.  The grandiose embellishment of color creates a sublime sense of tension between the dark glazed and color infusion.  Although very much in the Chosen Karatsu tradition, the execution is unequivocally contemporary.

Dark and awe inspiring, it shows to dramatic effect the path of flame in the kiln through the streaks of crusted ash and hi-iro on the sides interspersed with Shiso-iro gray-purple clay...
