Bizen Tokkuri by Kaneshige Michiaki
Kaneshige Michiaki(1934-1995) was the first son of the legendary Toyo (1896-1967) and helped his father for many years, including with visits by Rosanjin, Noguchi and many, many of Japan’s most famous potters of the 20th century that went to the Kaneshige kiln to create works. Michiaki was a fine potter in his own right having won the Japan Ceramic Society Award in 1979 and also being designated an Okayama Prefectural Intangible Property in 1990, as well as having an illustrious exhibition career. Here is surely one of the finest Kaneshige tokkuri that has shown up for years; oval-henko form, shibui firing, textures and rolled on wavy design, plus that all important Kaneshige tsuji-aji ‘clay-flavor.’ In perfect condition with a signed box, 12cm.tallx12cm.x10cm, stamped on the also engaging base.
