Tall Shigaraki Gourd-Shaped Tokkuri by Tsujimura Shiro
Here is fine, tall hyotan-gata (gourd-shaped) Shigaraki tokkuri by Tsujimura Shiro (b.1947). Tsujimura, as many know, is one of the best chadogu (tea ware) potters in contemporary Japanese ceramics. His works display a fascinating and deep simplicity, as well as a sensual iroke, or “eroticism.” The tokkuri has a lively form with superb ‘clay flavor’ embedded with smaill quartz pebbles, hi-iro fire tones and a most unusual-engaging ash-glaze. It’s 17.8cm tall. comes with a signed box and is in perfect condition.
