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.

The beautiful Thai Bronze Buddha statue completely captures his upper body. The Buddha's face is delicate and simply beautiful! His lips are pursed together and his eyes are downcast in deep meditation. It dates back to the late Ayutthaya Kingdom in the 18th century. A lovely piece with excellent detail and patina.

The wooden pedestal was renewed by our family a couple of years ago.

The size of the statue with its pedestal is large: it is 64 cm (25,19'') high!
