Are you tired of so many unspectacular items on the antique market? Here we present a real spectacular one - only one of a kind, an EARLY Momoyama Bizen hisago vase.

The very heavy body appears to be built from clay coils and then was thrown on a hand wheel, this and the combed decoration point to the Muromachi Period.

The beautiful yellow goma effect of the flying ash is now on the reverse side of the vase - indicating that the slight distortion was incidental and not part o...

Little distorted half cylinder shaped (kutsugata) tea bowl made of light, coarse, unrefined Mino clay.

The expertly thrown body is covered with the typical green copper oxide glaze inside and outside. A 'window' on the side has been left unglazed for decoration in iron oxide engobe under a clear ash glaze in a geometric pattern of squares and triangles and little circles. This is a typical late Momoyama design. The somewhat irregular foot is typical for the late production of the 1...
