Shigaraki Yabure-Tsubo-Jar by Sawa Kiyotsugu
Sawa Kiyotsugu(b.1948) is a Shigaraki veteran who makes powerful works, often under the radar of most collectors. Like the famous Iga ripped and torn Yaburebukuro mizusashi from the 16th century, this Sawa jar shares the same unbridled energy. The firing is classic Shigaraki, Sawa uses very rough clay and adds more motion and texture with incised comb markings. In perfect condition–one firing battle-scar–with a signed box, 37cm.tallx29-30cm.
