One of the most attractive chawan (tea bowls) I have seen by Shibuya Deishi. It have been used, as it should, and is starting to glow, as do vessels that go through time rich from having been taken care of. It is said that Hagi bowls have seven lives, and in each one they gain a degree of beauty. Six more to go.

Shibuya Deishi is a well known Hagi potter. He is a veteran craftsman and an industrious producer of Hagi ware and especially Oni-hagi ware. Winner of many local, as well as international awards (18th Modern Industrial Arts Exhibition), he is the Chairman of the Hagi Traditional Industrial Association.

He is a craftsman who has made readily available one of the most beautiful Japanese ceramic tradition, and this particular Oni-hagi bowl is a splendid example of the mastery and strength of its maker. The milky white glaze has a silky quality that gives a strong appeal to this chawan, and the contrast of tones is always spectacular.

Please inquire if you have some questions.

The bowl is signed and in perfect condition. It comes with its signed box.
Dimensions: 12.7 cm x 9.7 cm (5.1 in x 3.9 in), Weight 490 g (17.2 oz)
