Furutani Kazuya Shigaraki Chawan Tea Bowl
Please refer to our stock # 240 when inquiring.
A fantastic Tea Bowl by rising star Furutani Kazuya enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Shigaraki Chawan. Ash-glaze blasted with fire color of foggy green and yellow shizen yu glaze, shell props on the side, allowing us a view into the firing as it lay on its side in the kiln, the molten ash building up on the opposite side and following gravity down in streams. A sumptuous work exploiting the best Shigaraki pottery has to offer.
Size, D 11.4 x 12.3 cm H 9.6 cm
Furutani Kazuya (b. 1976) is one of Japan’s most promising young stars. He graduated the Yamaguchi College of Art in 1997, and spent a year at the ceramics research facility in Kyoto before returning to work under his father, Furutani Michio, in Shigaraki. His Father’s sudden death in 2000 pushed Kazuya to the fore, and left him with big shoes to fill. That he has done! Building three Anagama in the following decade and displaying with the National Ceramics Exhibition and a number of private affairs in some of Japan’s top venues.
