Sold, Many thanks!
Pair of mentori, faceted style vases by Shigaraki master potter, Kohyama Yasuhisa (b. 1936). The vase on the left side of the photos is an early Shigaraki mentori vase that was wood fired in his first anagama kiln, the vase on the right is a Hakuyu glazed vase, glazed with a Hagi style white glaze which Kohyama uses to this day on his "standard ware" functional pottery. There is a great deal written on Kohyama-san on the web, including a book which was published back in April (in English), let it suffice to say, he figures in as one of the most important Shigaraki artists of the modern age, having built the first anagama in Shigaraki Valley since medieval times.
The Shigaraki vase is boxed and measures 6.8" x 4.75" and is in fine condition. The Hakuyu glazed vase measures 7.25" x 3.75" and does not have a box but is also in fine condition.
