Sold, Thank you!
Potent green Iga-Oribe vase by noted master Japanese potter; Kishimoto Kennin (1934-). This roughly faceted mentori vase has varying hues of green and an overall iridescence across the body. Though Iga-Oribe, the clay body is actually wonderful Shigaraki clay with a healthy amount of feldspar inclusions.
Kishimoto has been making pots since the early 1950’s and is well know for a wide variety of wares that he has made including Shigaraki, Iga, Iga-Oribe, celadons and Ki-Seto. He has mastered each style he has turned his attention to. Well displayed, exhibited and published, Kishimoto is highly collected in Japan and the west.
In excellent condition and in its original signed box.
8.8” X 4.5” though larger in presence than its size implies
