Mint and Oni-Hagi masterpiece chawan with notched foot by star potter Seigan Yamane. This extraordinary tea bowl is covered by wonderful different shades of creamy beige on brown pottery. In my opinion it is the one of the most aesthetic chawans that he made. The seal of the artist is stamped on the bottom.

Seigan Yamane was born in 1952, and started making Hagi ware in 1987. And then, he started his own pottery in 1992 and has ever been awarded a lot of prizes for his great work.

A striking tea bowl and true piece of modern art by the popular young star Ichikawa Toru enclosed in the original signed wooden box. Completely new - mint condition.

We see the gamut and whole spectrum of this extraordinary artists work. It is this subtle attention to shape and texure which elevates the work of Ichikawa Toru.

He really takes things to the extreme, challenging and yet incorporating something of the idea of Wabi into his outlandish works.
