A pair of green glazed pots with blue highlights, two pots in which the later influence of Tofukuji on potters such as Aiba Kouichiro(Kouyo) and Ino Shukuho can clearly be seen.
A blue glazed rectangle with a similiar glaze to the round in the previous post. This pot simultaneously calls to my mind blue flames and running water in a spring brook, an interesting contradiction.
An interesting multicolor glazed round with cut feet and a marvelous patina.
A light blue green glazed oval pot with cut feet.
A tall cascade style with Kiri Bako(kiri wood storage box).
A squat blue green glazed square with cut feet. This is a body style of pot common to Tofukuji, often seen glazed with darker blues, the lighter blue green glaze here is a little less common.
Another green glazed pot with silver and blue glazed highlights where Tofukuji’s influence on contemporary potter Ino Shukuho can clearly be seen, as in the next picture.
A metallic grey green glazed oval with a marvelous patina.
A deep blue oval, with cloud feet. This is the most common blue glaze seen in Tofukuji pots. A marvelous deep indigo.
Hope you have enjoyed these first two posts dealing with the glazed pots of Tofukuji. In the next post I’ll be showing off a few more pots from my own collection, then on to the unglazed pots and Hanko of Tofukuji.
