Iron-Oribe Glazed Squat Jar-Henko by Hamanaka Gesson
Hamanaka Gesson (b.1943) is a multi-talented ceramic artist who established his Hagi kiln in 1969; he’s had an amazing career ever since with fans throughout Japan and the world. He’s known not only for his traditional Hagi wares yet also for his hybrids where he combines various glazes and clays not seen in Hagi before. Here is a strong example of that, an iron-Oribe glezed jar with wax resist patterns over the bold form. In perfect condition with a signed box, 19cm.tallx19x16.3, signed on base, EMS included.
