Wood-Fired Lidded Jar Brown Ash Glaze Shigaraki by Takahashi Rakusai IV

About

This spacious, ash-glazed Shigaraki jar with lid and handles was made by Takahashi Rakusai IV. He was born 1925 in Shigaraki and is probably the most famous Shigaraki potter. The Takahashi family is along with the Ueda family the oldest potter family in Shigaraki and largely responsible for preserving traditions, especially after the second world war. Takahashi Rakusai IV succeeded his father the third Takahashi – who was designated as “Intangible Cultural Property” by government – in 1976 and passed the tradition subsequently to his son in 2010. Signed underneath. Comes with fitted, signed and sealed wooden box. Dimension: Height 19.2 x diameter 20.1 cm.
