Bushuan Pots Part 2

Today’s post we’ll look at a few more pots from Shigeru Fukuda, aka Bushuan, the subject of our last post. In addition to the Bushuan from my collection on my “For Sale” page, all of the pots shown in today’s post are available for sale from Japan, are 5.5-6″, and come with original box and cloth, drop me a line if you’re interested.
It’s very easy to see from these pieces why Bushuan pots are always mentioned in conjunction with Tofukuji. His glazes are unique and spectacular, yet harmonious in the same way. Like Tofukuji, Bushuan began as a hobby potter, was self-taught, and came to pottery as a second career. So many parallels for these two masters of glaze.

The Tofukuji pot in the thumbnail clearly shows the links and similarity these potters have, the analogy made by so many is most definitely apt! This Bushuan called almost be an homage! The Tofukuji pot is from the collection of Matt Ouwinga, of Kaede Bonsai-En.

Thanks for stopping in to see a few more fantastic pots. I hope you enjoyed seeing them as much as I enjoyed finding them! Tomorrow’s post I’ll be profiling potter and painter Haruyoshi, a modern master of underglaze painting.

UPDATE:12/27

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 gastrognome@aol.com
