A slightly oblong bowl covered in an incredibly thick blast of molten ash by important Shigaraki artist Otani Shiro enclosed in the original signed wooden box dating circa 1983. It is 24 x 26 x 10 cm (9-1/2 x 10 x 4 inches) and is in fine condition.
Shiro was born in 1936, and studied first in Kyoto under Kiyomizu Kyubei and Shofu Eichi before moving to Shigaraki in 1973, where he took up apprenticeship under Living National Treasure Shimizu Uichi. He has participated in the Nihon Dento Kogei Ten (National crafts Exhibition) as well as innumerable private exhibitions both domestic and International, and was named an Intangible Cultural Asset of Shigaraki in 1990. His work is held in both the Brooklyn Museum of Art and Smithsonian among others.
