Kuro-Raku Chawan by the 11th generation Keinyu Kichizaemon (1817-1902) enclosed in its originally signed and sealed wooden box.

Apart from being expertly formed and bestowed with symbolic imagery, this piece has the added distinction of being created by Raku XI Keinyu, the...

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 wor...
