Fantastic Bizen Sangiri stoneware vase made by Jun Isezaki (b. 1936).

Sangiri is the Bizen technique when the vessel is partially buried in sand in the kiln. The exposed area turns blackish because the ashes that cover it retards oxidation.
Jun Isezaki was named a Living National Treasure in 2004.

Bizen ware was originally produced in Imbe village of Bizen province since Kamakura period of 14th century.

Height 22cm
Diameter 12cm

Very good. There is a natural crack at the rim occurred during firing in kiln.
Supplied with a signed wooden box
