Pots From the Bushuan Kiln 4

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’m a rabid fan of the work of Shigeru Fukuda, who makes some spectacular bonsai pots under the trade name Bushuan. For a look back at some of the other Bushuan pots we’ve looked at on the blog, click here:

Now, let’s have a look at a few more pots from the contemporary master who is so often compared to Tofukuji, On to the Pots!

A round multiple glaze yellow crackle from my collection. The drips and runs to the different yellows are spectacular. Really a masterpiece. At 9″, one of the larger Bushuan pieces around.

A fluted round 8″ with vertical striping blues and greens from my collection. Another large piece, and really beautifully glazed.

A smaller rich red cascade style with tan clay exposed at the feet, from my collection. If you look close, you can see a line of running drip red glaze under the rim.

Another round cascade or semi cascade from my collection. Blue and green drip glazes over black. This one also has a nice patina beginning to show.


From two sides: a marvelously glazed rectangle Bushuan, with multiple blues, whites, and greens. Really spectacular multi color glaze.

A more sedate Bushuan mokko shape with full cloud feet. Really pretty blue-green glaze.



Two sides and the bottom of a really nice, large rectangle in one of Fukuda’s signature glazes.

The same signature Bushuan glaze as above, this image showing multiple views of the fantastic drip glaze with its blues and rich greens.


Front and back of a smaller Bushuan oval with more blocky swathes of color. Bushuan ovals are rare.


A painted collaboration piece from Bushuan and Mitsuko.


Front and 3 sides of a really nice double glazed Bushuan from Morimae at S-Cube. Really nice drips an complimentary colors.

I may have shown this one before, but it’s worth a second look! The really beautiful marbling glaze is a study in balance!



And we’ll finish up today’s look at Bushuan pots with this awesome cream glazed rectangle with multiple blue and green overglaze. Even the damn bottom is gorgeous people!

Thanks for having a look with me at some more pots from contemporary master Shigeru Fukuda! Thanks for reading!


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
