It is a very finely fired Iga lidded box by one of the finest Iga style potters in Japan today. Fujioka Shuhei (b. 1947) was born in Ueno city in Iga prefecture, one of the oldest pottery sites in Japan. Shuhei started his own kiln in 1975. He is featured in the book "125 Contemporary Potters of Japan.” The piece has a nice hi-iro fire color, clay flavor and ash glaze surfaces. It is 4 ½” high and 4 ½” wide. It comes in a signed box and is in perfect condition.
