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!

Bottom Detail

White glazed oval with “signature” style Tofukuji feet. Great patina on this pot! I find white glazed pots with patina irresistible!

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.


About japanesepots

I've been collecting Japanese Bonsai pots for a few years, and feel that the famous, and some of the lesser known but great Japanese pot artists could do with a little more writing and exposure in English. Additionally, this blog will feature My own And others bonsai for discussion. The purpose of this blog is to further knowledge of Japanese pottery and Japanese style bonsai. If you have any questions about Japanese bonsai pottery, or would like to acquire pots by some of the potters presented in the blog, feel free to email me at

    That white oval with green touches and the aurora round pot are both marvellous, very nice glazes. That blue starry one has a lovely atmosphere to it as well, and a great shape.
    Nice selection !
