A spectacular Iga Tsubo by Shimizu Hiroshi enclosed in the original signed wooden box. Bidoro, Tombo-no-me, tobi-hai, shiseki…the surface is an exploration of kiln affects, every slight turn bringing new surprises. It is 15 inches (38.5 cm) diameter, 17 inches (43 cm) tall and in excellent condition. Due to size the cost of shipping will be accrued separately.
Shimizu Hiroshi was born the grandson of the first generation potter Shimizu Rakuzan in Mie prefecture in1941. He began working under his grandfather in 1959, going on a study tour from 1961; spending time in Takatori, Tamba and Hagi. He opened his own kiln in Mie in 1970, but the following year decided to move to Korea to study the origins of Japanese Tea Ceramics and Korean firing technique. He opened his own kiln in Korea in 1974 and developed a style combining Japanese tradition and Korean techniques, continuing this development throughout his career, and differentiates the origin of his works with the kiln name in Korea or the kiln name in Japan on the box lid. This is from his original kiln in Mie.
