Wood-Fired Naturally Ash-Glazed Brown Bizen Flower Vase by Kimura Sojo

About

An outstanding, museum quality Bizen flower vase made by Kimura Sojô (*1945), who has been trained by famous Living National Treasure Isezaki Jun (*1936). This extraordinary piece bears exceptional patterns of highly developed techniques unique to Bizen pottery. Long ash glaze drops that run vertically around the vase are showing that the object has layed down on the side in the kiln during firing. Circular shaped reverse patterns (botamochi) with beautiful and lively color changing of garnet red, orange and green are visible traces of the firing supports. All these are typical characteristics of the so called "pushed-over" pieces (korogashi) that are rare and regarded as the master pieces of highly advanced potters. Comes with fitted, signed and sealed wooden box. Dimensions: Height 24.5 x diameter 16.5 cm.
