Randomly patterned and ethereal porcelain mizusashi by nunozome master, Uwataki Katsuji. This wonderful example of Uwataki's nunozome technique is a fine mizusashi with pastel colors floating just under the surface of the vellum glaze making for a modern Arita tea ceremony object.

Covered over in a thick coating of Hakuji style glaze the surface has shimmering crystals formed by tin throughout the surface creating a rather pleasant surface. The form is a classic ridged, shinogi style bowl which culminates in the buff stoneware ring of the foot.

Robust and feudal style Ko-Iga style chawan by veteran potter, Kojima Kenji. This broad bowl has a strong, purposeful form which gentlely undulates around the pot and is seen in the roving lip and the chawan is finished with a classic foot as seen on many of Kojima's teabowls. The face and interior of the chawan have a nice deposit of ash with areas about the lip being covered in a soft, green ash with the rear of the chawan detailing both fire color, hi-iro and a nice clay flavor, tsuchi-aji.

Robust Oribe style covered jar with kushime slip decoration and angular knob. Though not necessarily intended as a mizusashi, it sits well next to a Shigaraki chawan in photo #6. ***I should also mention there is a fine crack where the knob meets the lid that is not sharp and does not effect the use and function of this piece.

Interesting and rare set of Iga chawan by the "grandfather" of modern Iga-yaki, Tanimoto Kosei and his son, Tanimoto Kei. Both of these wood fired chawan are robust pieces that typify the work of each artist and the modern Iga movement with areas of rich green ash balanced against toasty hi-iro fire color and allowing the tsuchi-aji, clay taste to be enjoyed as well. In each of the photos, the Tanimoto Kosei is on the left and the Tanimoto Kei on the right showing the characteristics, surface an...

Wonderful porcelain tsubo with exquisitely painted sparrow and foliage across the surface with vivid watercolor like effects calling to mind a scene right out of early autumn. The detail of the painting is rather intricate and obviously owes its inspiration to many of the Meiji era painters of which Watanabe Seitei (1851-1918) immediately springs to mind. This painted tsubo measures 9.75" x 7" and is in very good condition with some areas of scuffing around the foot which I suspect can be remove...

Large Aka-raku style chawan with excellent modeling and spatula work with a perfect, small kodai on which the bowl balances giving it a wonderful lift upward. Measuring in at 13.5 x 9.5 centimeters, this chawan has an exceptional posture and balance, feeling great in the hand and appearing larger than the dimensions would indicate. The surface has a wonderful complexity to it, like mist on a pond with the color coming out to greet the viewer with rich, dark black carburized spots punctuating the...

This bold and impressive Oni-Shino Kannon vase is by the master potter and legendary personality; Tsukigata Nahiko (1923-2006). This rare wood fired Oni-Shino vase is a classic pot by the artist with a wide array of effects and attributes that Tsukigata is well known for which was further painted by the ferocity of the wood firing having one of the most complex surfaces by him that I have seen. The running natural ash which has accumulated on the face of the vase accentuate the verticality of th...

This large Haku-Enyu, crackled white salt fired chawan is by the master Kyoto potter; Iwabuchi Shigeya (1925-1993). This evocative and textured white chawan has very subtle undertones of a pink blush around the mouth and is covered with a series of crazed and crackled salt glaze deposited on the white slipped surface of the bowl showing the occassional gohonde fawn spots. The generous bowl shape is reminiscent of older Hagi and even Korean chawan and is terminated with an exceptional bamboo node...
