Mori Togaku (b. 1937) Bizen Flask-Vase (Kabura) in the Shape of a Turnip Japanese Studio Pottery

Rare piece from Mori Togaku's first large kiln firing in 1980.
The potter's stamp on front and base of the vessel.

Large round bottle with globular body, narrow neck and wide, flaring rim.
Half of the body is coloured with goma and half is unglazed creating a powerful constrast of textures from carefully manipulated kiln conditions.

Mori Togaku is a Bizen master of creating kiln effects such as ash glazing and scorch marks, both of which are traditional ornaments in Bizen ware.
