A Classical Day—Three Works by Kishino Kan
Kishino Kan (b.1975) lives and breathes ceramics in the hills of Iga. Not just Iga though he also fires Shino, Kohiki, Ki-Seto, Setoguro, Hakuji-White Porcelain and other styles; he’s a great admirer and connoisseur of ancient ceramic art. A pure spirit comes out his his adaptations of the classics and here are three; a large yakishime–natural ash-glazed o-tsuo (42.5cm.tallx41.2cm/380,000 yen), and two uzukumaru jars, the taller at 26.2cm.tallx21.2(100,000 yen) and the other at 19.2cm.tallx18.3(80,000 yen). All in perfect condition, signed boxes for the small two, signed ‘board’ for the o-tsubo. Kishino established his kiln in Iga in 2004.
