Sold, Thank you!
Fine Shigaraki chawan by Kon Chiharu. Kon Chiharu apprenticed with the legendary master potter Tsuji Seimei and his work and firing is broadly reminescent of the masters work. Kon fires an anagama type kiln in Niigata but his works are decidedly Shigaraki in tradition and effect. His chawan start at 140,000 yen and can fetch up to 220,000 yen.
This chawan is enclosed in it's original box and is in excellent, unused condition. It measures about 4.5" X 3.6" and the ash banded top of the chawan, splendid hi-iro (fire color) and well turned foot, kodai make for an great feeling chawan to the eye and hand. This teabowl is a wonderful example of Kon Chiharu's work.
