Mizuya | Red Raku Chawan: Kuroshio

We have never seen a red raku bowl like this! Just added to Mizuya

http://mizuya.com/2015/08/red-raku-chawan-kuroshio/

We have recently acquired this dramatic tall red raku chawan (tea bowl) with a well-placed ash glaze drip that is almost calligraphic in nature. The bowl is by Mokukian (a tea master?) for his own use, and the box is inscribed 黒潮 “Kuroshio” (black tide) which we think is a very apt name indeed! The…

Mizuya | Tokoname Tsubo #2

Here is the second Tokoname tsubo.

http://mizuya.com/2015/07/tokoname-tsubo-2/

This is the second large Tokoname tsubo (large jar) we have for sale, also from the Momoyama to early Edo era. Tokoname is located in the central part of Aichi Prefecture and is the oldest of Japan’s six ancient kilns. Tokoname ware was first produced for religious purposes, especially in the form o…

Mizuya | Tokoname Tsubo #1

We are finally adding inventory after a long absence: Two Tokoname tsubos from the Momoyama to Edo era. This is the first one.

We are pleased to offer this large, exceptional Tokoname tsubo (large jar) from the Momoyama to early Edo era. Tokoname is located in the central part of Aichi Prefecture and is the oldest of Japan’s six ancient kilns. Tokoname ware was first produced for religious purposes, especially in the form o…

This is really CLAY, not a creature from the sea. And over 100 years old. Just added on Mizuya.

Mizuya | Awabi-shaped Iga Bowl-Edo

New item on Mizuya: Awabi shaped Iga bowl

http://mizuya.com/2013/12/awabi-shaped-iga-bowl-edo/

Meiji era shallow bowl shaped in the form of an awabi (abalone) shell. The extremely rough texture of Iga ware skillfully mimics the texture of abalone shell on the outside, while the plate surface is glazed smooth. Abalone plates are often used to serve sashimi. Top with bamboo leaves and/or ice fo...

Mizuya | Small light blue Mimpei dish

New item on Mizuya

Small square light blue/turquoise blue mimpei kozara (small dish) from the late Edo era with a Chinese-inspired motif and scalloped edges. Mimpei ware has grown in popularity in Japan but is not as widely collected in the U.S. Produced in rural Shikoku by founder Mimpei Kasyu, mimpei ware can be fou...

Mizuya | Shino andonzara

New item on Mizuya

We love andonzara, the heavy, rugged plates that were placed under lamps in the days before electricity. Although Seto and Shino andonzara can be easy to find, it’s rare to find one where the painting catches your imagination. And rarely do we find an example as fine as this — which we feel is evoc...

Mizuya | Shino vase with Chidori motif

New item on Mizuya

This Shino vase with chidori (plover) and wave motif is from the late-Edo era. It has a very nice hand-modeled shape in the form of a gently squared-off cylinder. The glaze has all the most desirable qualities of Shino ware, including areas of thick glaze, glaze skips and pinholes.

New item on Mizuya

Small yellow raku plate with abstract dango (dumpling) design. Along with a seal, the back of the plate is inscribed “Miyako Odori”, which is the annual dance review that is held in late March during the Cherry blossom season in Kyoto’s Gion neighborhood.
