Echizen Jar-Tsubo by Masudaya Kosei
We’ve hardly ever seen a more hauntingly beautiful Echizen jar in over three decades in Japan, of all styles for that matter. Masudaya Kosei (b.1950) is the artist. A wonderful variety of ash effects especially over the shoulders are one highlight of this tsubo-jar. Masudaya established his kiln in 1975 and has shown at galleries throughout Japan as well as at the Echizen: Eight Hundred Years of Japanese Stoneware at the Birmingham Museum of Art, Alabama in 1994, the Minneapolis Institute of Art also was a contributor to that exhibition. In perfect condition with a signed box, 42.3cm.x35-36cm, signed on base.
