In this post I’d like to take a look at a few more glazed pots by Heian Tofukuji. All of the pots featured in todays post are currently for sale. Special thanks to Rie Aketo of Yoshoen and the Hukanos of Yorozuen for the images.
A very nice Tofukuji with muted greens and blues. This color works well with many different species.
A very nice blue with white highlights. Reminds me of a starry night. Begs for an Umemodoki or Japanese maple in fall color.
One of my favorite Tofukuji pots! Note the multiple chops on the base, and on the interior, very rare! The glaze is beautiful, and the detailed feet and bands are masterful!
White glazed oval with “signature” style Tofukuji feet. Great patina on this pot! I find white glazed pots with patina irresistible!
Rich blue glazed drum in “Tofukuji Blue.”
Blue and green glazed oval with cut feet. Brings to my mind the Aurora Borealis.
Masterful dark blue with light blue highlights. This pot is just great! Not much I can say!
Really nice blackish blue glazed handformed oval. The finger indents in these terebineri pots are really cool, a visible sign of handmade pots.
Rustic white glaze over white clay. The thickness of this glaze is outstanding, white clay Tofukuji are rarer than other clay colors.
Last but not least we have this lovely glazed rectangle. For only 800,000¥, or $10,000, it could be yours! Just shoot Yorozuen an email!
I hope you enjoyed looking at more glazed pots by Heian Tofukuji.
