A sublime mizusashi (water jar for the Japanese tea ceremony) from the Tokoname pottery tradition, and dating from the Edo period (1615-1868).

The lid of the mizusashi box bears an attestation by the 14th Urasenke tea master Tantansai (1893-1964), describing it as a “Tokoname-yaki ebi-mimi mizusashi” (tokoname mizusashi with shrimp shaped handles). Indeed, that feature makes the jar particularly interesting, as well as a very rare item.

Kindly inquire if you have some questions.

A very attractive chawan (tea bowl) from the Hagi pottery tradition.

The pink glaze is certainly what makes this classic vessel stand out. It is said that Hagi tea bowls have seven lives, their robe slowly changing as they gracefully age. This particular vessel has apparently already been reincarnated several times.

Hagi pottery is one of the best known Japanese ceramics. The first Hagi kiln was established in 1648 by Korean potters who had been brought to Japan by the local lord, ...

A sublime small katakuchi (sake decanter) dating from the Golden Age of Karatsu ware, the Momoyama period (1568-1600).

Underneath, the “mikkazuki” (third day moon) shaped foot with the rough looking, cookie-like bare clay, is a typical feature of this kind of Karatsu pottery.
