Chosen-Karatsu–Yohen–Tokkuri by Fujinoki Dohei
Deep in the hills of Karatsu is Fujinoki Dohei’s studio that he established in 1980. A potter close to nature, Fujinoki(b.1949) is a master Karatsu potter with a wide following here in Japan. On a recent visit these three Chosen-Karatsu (yohen–kiln changes by ash for these) were selected for the superb firings and forms. The left multi-faceted one is 15.5cm. tall and is On Reserve, the tallest and most traditional in form is 17.2cm.tall and is 88,000 yen, while the smallest one is 12.5cm.tall and is Sold; all in perfect condition with signed boxes, signed on base, also good for chabana.
