  • Description
    An antique Japanese stoneware storage jar, known as tsubo from Shigaraki kiln, circa 17th-18th century (early Edo possibly Momoyama period). The tsubo is of an impressive size at nearly 21 inches high. Characteristic of Shigaraki stoneware, the jar has a natural deep brown-orange-reddish hues that varies subtly across its surface, a thin ash glaze that is almost invisible and a rough granular texture. Many "accidents" during the firing process are evident on this jar as well, a few large amalgamated granule protrusions, some exploded clay bubbles and even two chunks of embedded feldspar, all adding to its unique appeal.

Message from Seller:

I became interested in the Ceramic Arts; specifically Ancient Chinese Pottery, when my brother Marc; also an art dealer, introduced it to me over 20 years ago. Since then I traveled throughout Asia; including Hong Kong, Japan, and Korea, in search for those special pieces that appeal to the discerning collector, as well as the Designer Market.
