I think Steve wants it, Henry. But if he decides otherwise I'll post on the thread to let you know next day or so.

I don't know the age for certain. I do have another Raku bowl with an inscription on the inside of the box lid from a monk who died at the end of the 18th c stating that the bowl was thrown by Kichizaemon VII or VIII, I can't remember which.
This 18th c bowl has a similar feeling and patina to the one for sale, but more wear inside, that characteristic beige look where the glaze has been stripped away through use. In the first post I said Meiji since no one can take exception to that dating. But I don't believe it is 19th c although I could be wrong.
Here also are a couple more pics showing the damage more clearly.
If you tap the bowl with yr fingernail while balanced in yr palm it sounds dull from the cracks but it doesn't leak and is used regularly.

Brian,

 

Would definitely appreciate a pottery/ceramics category here.  As Christian says, some of us are as devoted to yakimono as we are to nihonto/tosogu...  ;) 

 

Cheers,

 

Steve

Hi all,

I love these bowls!
Thinking of getting one or two, but is situation same as with nihonto, ie easy to go wrong unless studied a good deal first, fakes are about etc?

Best regards,

Gard S.

Great to see so much Iga-yaki here!  Brian, it appears we need a ceramics forum... ;)

 

Cheers,

 

Steve

 

P.S.  Chris, that Iga tokkuri is especially appealing.  Thanks for sharing!

Think I know where you got those! I almost bought either that guinomi or one very similar. Fukushima is another of my recent favs...The iga tokkuri I posted above is by him!

Yes Chris, they come from the same gallery, as well as the Shuei Fujioka in post 37.

 

And I think I know where you got the photo of the Fukushima tokkuri you posted...here is another one, from the same source  ;-)

Yes she is special. I was in contact with her agent to go and see a firing but I just missed a then recent one. Then life got in the way.

I've got a few of her things, that volcanic looking sakazuki with the molten inside is one if hers. The outside feels like it was ripped out of a mountain.

This one.

Maybe not just a pottery thread, Brian. How about "Japanese culture," "Asian antiques," or something similar? That would allow pottery, netsuke, yoroi, abumi, & a few hundred other sale categories to be lumped together. I do wonder if that might not get out of control, though....

Korean alcohol cup circa 1900-10. Minimalist tour de force, it wasn't expensive and although I prefer modern pieces to antique ones I probably use it the most, often with an Iga tokkuri.

Hello Gard

Sorry for the late reply. A good resource for many aspects of J-Pots is Robert Yellin's site e-yakimono.net

Thank you Philip for posting this eye-catching tokkuri by Tetsuya Kowari. He is also the maker of this "Shino guinomi covered with ash" I found today in an online shop in Japan. It's my first guinomi of this kind and, from the pictures, I find it very appealing.

Nice one Bernard. Dai Ginjo, mate⛅ for the christening!

I'll join you with this mild not to say humble take on Shigaraki by Aiko Watanabe in 2014.

Cheers

You seem to be a fan of Aiko Watanabe...I don't own any ceramic by her, but I love the pieces you post !
