Hello Bernard & Henry (my pleasure, Henry)

Here's something you don't see every day, a Shigaraki ichirinzashi from Aiko Watanabe 2011. I've only seen one other but I'm sure there must be more!

It belongs to a friend.

Dali would be at home with some of these ceramics. You really need to hold and fondle these objects, they are tactile. John

Nice Bernard thanks for posting. Yr pics make the piece much more appealing. Pace Christian maybe 'cruel' should be withdrawn?

You are changing my taste in yakimono.

Here's an Akaraku chawan with kintsugi suitable for a cherry blossom viewing party. Vintage or older, the box is certainly rickety enough for a Meiji piece.

Thank you Philip. Your last post reminds me of a raku chawan I had posted on the forum long ago, also with a kitsungi...

Here are the pics.

Nice bowl Bernard. All the posting on this new section, digging out various bowls for sale and so on has re-ignited my interest in tea. But in preparation for this evening's debauch here's another Aiko San Iga guinomi from 2012.

Philip, where did you get all these appealing Aiko Watanabe potteries ? On the Net ? From a specialized gallery ? Directly from the potter ? I guess that living in Japan facilitates the purchase of such items. What are your experiments in this field, as you are living in (near ?) Tokyo ?

Let's stay in Iga wares. Here are some pics of a small guinomi by Furutani Kazuya and a link to the potter website.

Hello Bernard

Nice guinomi mate! I like that one.

Going round Izu visiting onsen and kilns as perhaps Chris used to do when he was living there is fun. As you know anagama are only fired twice or thrice a year and I never managed to fit in with Aiko chan's or any other Iga or Shigaraki kiln's schedule.

I did visit a Bizen place where they will send it on once fired after a week or so and made a tokkuri, subsequently the cause of much hilarity. It was so heavy I used to hide it in my mates backpacks before a day on the hills. It went up Takaosan twice and Oyama once before the inevitable happened.

Here's a chawan I also made along with a sake cup by the resident potter, both Bizen in style. You roll clay into long cylinders and build them up before trying to shape in an interesting way, easier said than done as you can see. I wasn't allowed to attempt a koudai (or to sit with the other students).

I'll pm you some links after I remember their names- been a while since my last purchase.

The post 58 guinomi arrived then? That's got quite a lot to it, hasn't it!

Here's some morning tea without ceremony pics to compliment Henry's. Bowl is by Keinyu (1817-1902). His stamp shown below is the one on the underside and is the earliest version. He had four throughout his long lifetime.

Thanks for posting the Tanba guinomi, Bernard. I hadn't come across this potter before.


Here's a link to an American potter living here. I like the guinomi and some other pieces. his blog is full of info about his experiments with ash/glaze mixes, and often illustrates the different results from the pot in question's position inside the anagama.

Here's a couple of Aiko Watanabe yunomi, simple every day items of use that show off the great Shigaraki clay. One of the truly unencumbered pleasures of life in Japan is to find yourself being served in some restaurant or other with this level of cup or plate or tokkuri.

I hope no one minds my resurrecting this pottery thread. It's been a while since I've posted here and surely there ought to be many beautiful new acquisitions owners would be willing to share.
For my part I have made no new purchases in the interim. However this cup came into my keeping recently, not Japanese but from a place called Wang Kum Karm 20 to 30 k south of Chiangmai.
The characteristic blue green glaze from this area is achieved from bark ash from a local tree mixed with celadon clay from Lamphun.made for use by ordinary people not export and around 200 years before Chiangmai Old Kingdom.
