Two Yakishime Chawan by Kishino Kan
The left one is on the large side while the right one is a standard chawan size, both have most engaging yakishime (unglazed high-fired natural-ash-glaze-stoneware) varied ‘landscapes.’ Kishino Kan (b.1975, Kyoto) lives and breathes ceramics in the hills of Iga. Not just Iga though he also fires Shino, Kohiki, Ki-Seto, Setoguro, Hakuji-White Porcelain and other styles; he’s a great admirer and connoisseur of ancient ceramic art as well. A pure spirit comes out his his adaptations of the classics. We also have a Ki-Irabo chawan, some sake vessels and yakishime jars of various sizes.
