When you hold this piece in your hands, first contact, you get it.  A Rey unusual and organic form by Isezaki Koichiro enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Hikidashiguro Chawan.  It has been a pleasure to watch over the last 30 years the reinvigoration in pottery in Japan, an explosion of innovation which seems exponential.  It continues to blossom bigger every year.  The potters are so technically skilled and taking an original approach to the ceramic arts.  Isezaki Koichiro is a front runner among them.
