A Kogo incense container by Shigaraki legend Sugimoto Sadamitsu enclosed in the original wooden box. A pool of crystal green shadows the lid. Cut from a single chunk of clay, it is 2-1/4 inches (6 cm) square and in perfect condition. Sadamitsu was born in Tokyo in 1935. He established his own kiln at 33, receiving the kiln name from his mentor Daitokuji priest Tachibana Oki Roshi. His Zen studies have refined the spiritual side of his work, and all of his wood fired ceramics have a quiet and confident power. He has spent his life in the research of kohiki, Shigaraki Iga and Raku wares, and is more than well known in tea circles for the discriminating soul of his works.
