A dark tenmoku-yu form with highlights of rich kaki-orange by Kimura Morikazu enclosed in the original signed wooden box and dating from the 1960s. It is 11 inches (27 cm) tall and in overall fine condition.
Born to the house of a Kyo-yaki potter and studied under Ishiguro Munemaru, Morikazu established his first kiln in the Gojo Zaka area of Kyoto in 1947, moving to Fukui in 1976. He is held in the collection of both the Kyoto National Museum of Modern Art and the Imperial Household Agency. He has been displayed at innumerable private exhibitions in addition to major exhibitions such as the Nitten, Nihon Dento Kogeiten(National Traditional Crafts Exhibition) and Nihon Togei Ten (National Ceramics Exhibition) among others. Winner of the Japan Ceramics Society (JCS) award, purchased by the Ministry of Foreign affairs. Morikazu has been incredibly influential on the subsequent generation of potters interested in Tenmoku and Yuteki glazes.
