Bizen Summer Chawan by Fujiwara Ken
Fujiwara Ken(1924-1977)–a gallery favorite; more about him in our archives. Here is a rare open-faced summer chawan in perfect condition; the placement in the kiln was precise as to give the pool a ‘cool’ ‘clay flavor’ look while the outside is covered in goma natural-ash glaze. It’s 6.8cm.tallx16cm., signed on base. B&W photo from Fujiwara’s deluxe retrospective book, similar ones.
