Here are a few new pots from my collection that I’ve picked up In the last couple months that I thought I’d feature. Enjoy!
A nicely glazed small piece from close friend of Ino Shukuho, 川間(Kawai). He uses Shukuho’s kiln and often his glazes, and does very nice work for a hobby potter. These are rare to find, I’ve only seen a handful around.
Very old Chinese bonsai pot in Shudei. Not quite an antique, but a minimum of 60-70 years old and with a very nice patina and clay color, and very high quality construction. At 5.5″, this is the prefect piece for a smaller Shohin top rack pine(and I think I’ll be popping one in there soon!).
A greenish red glazed footed kifu size pot from Shishimaru. The glaze on this one is very cool and unique. The color of glaze changes color depending on lighting and perspective, from red to green and back again.
An older mokko shape Shiro glazed pot from ???. I purchased this one from Iura San in Japan. The patina on this piece is outstanding. Despite heroic efforts on my part, the identity of the potter remains a mystery.
And we’ll finish up today’s collection post with this very uniquely glazed mokko shape pot of many colors, from Yokohama Guild potter 安幸-“Yasuiko”.
A really nice swirling mix of creams, blacks, blues and greens.
