Here is the next Japanese rare Momoyama Period collectible:

Slightly distorted cylinder shaped (hanzutsu) tea bowl made of light, fine, unrefined Mino clay.

Shape and style make it appear contemporary with the late Oribe bowls. The expertly thrown body is covered with the typical black oniita engobe inside and outside - with the exception of the bottom - over which a white, feldspatic Shino glaze has been poured. Just the foot ring and its immediate surrounding was left ...

Ch¨­sen Karatsu (³¯õrÌƽò) Chawan with a fantastic vivid glaze. It dates from the late Edo Period, no cracks, no repairs.

This traditional style was introduced by one or more potters brought from the Joseon Dynasty during the Japanese invasions of Korea. It features a black glaze placed under a white glaze which has been fired with straw. The two glazes run together and give a feeling of opposites.

The old box and shipping are included.

Lavender clouds, rain on a foggy morning, snowy mountain landscapes, this is what comes to your mind when you look on this superb pale kurinuki Hagi tea bowl, made by Master and potter legend Kaneta Masanao, enclosed in the original signed wooden box.

Kurinuki is a technique carving and scooping out forms from a solid block of clay to produce boldly-cut forms, an approach the artist is famous for. Kaneta Masanao is an 8th generation Hagi potter. He likely needs no introduction, cer...

Rough and heavy Hagi Chawan, over 100 years old (Meiji Period), with an expressive crackle glaze.

Aesthetic inborn kiln cracks make this chawan so special. No damages or repairs.

The signature chip located on the bottom (unknown potter to me) is a local tradition from the Edo period when potters would deliberately disfigure their wares in order to sell them to merchants instead of presenting them as gifts to the Môri clan.

A good wood box, a shifuku and sh...

Another highlight of our family collection: Rather large Chinese Kinuta Seiji Celadon Vase for Japanese Tea Ceremony. Classical mallet (kinuta) shaped celadon vase in the style of the longquan kilns of the 13th century. The celadon glaze is applied very thickly and the vase may have been glazed and fired more than one time. Some fine aesthetic hairlines complete its beautiful expression.

The execution of the foot rim and the texture of the clay matches the Chinese original. The col...

Here is a fascinating Oribe Chawan (tea bowl) made by Koie Ryoji, one of the best internationally known contemporary Japanese potters. It is another embodiment of the artist’s spirit, with a shape that remains free and moving, rough, unique and dynamic. Its colors and its rawness is reminiscent of a wild landscape. As with many works by the famous artist, this piece’s dynamism conveys pure energy and raw strength. Through its shiny glaze, rough texture and primitive markings, one gets the...
