Shiro Hagi Chawan Tea Bowl by Udagawa Hosei Please See !!!
Please refer to our stock # 532 when inquiring.
Thick white vitrifies over bottomless black, creating a stark sense of drama on this outstaniding work by world renowned potter Udagawa Hosei enclosed in the original signed wooden box complete with an exhibition pamphlet from Isetan Department Store advertising a similar work .
The white glaze crawls and plays over the slightly blue tinged glaze, which covers the rough Hagi clay.
The raw red clay is visible beneath where the glaze has crawled away to allow a peek inside. A simply stunning work by this important artist that his works are getting harder and harder to find!
Size, D 13.3 cm H 10.4 cm
Already during his short lifetime Udagawa Hosei (1946-1993) was considered one of the most important Hagi potters. Much exhibited and lauded, works by him line the shelves of some of the most important collections in the world. This is indeed a rare opportunity.
