Classic Showa era bowl by Ichikawa Kodo (B.1925) this gama-yohen chawan shows a wide variety of textures and colors with wonderful iridescence and copper flashes across the bowl with areas of streaking and feather patterns as well as banded lines flowing across the surface. This chawan is in great, original condition and measures 13.15 x 7.2cm and comes with its signed box. I don't know a lot about the potter, though he is illustrated in several books and is listed in the Gendai Togei Jiten and Gendai Tougei Zufu stating he specialized in this gama-yohen as well as Shino and Oribe pottery. I think what makes this bowl appealing is the unique surface, practical size and form and its dedication to function. All in all a great bowl for shelf or us.
You can see a slideshow video of this chawan on Youtube if you search "ichikawa kodo" or over at my I, POTTER blog; albedo3studio(dot)blogspot(dot)com/
