Sorry for the long silence. We’ve been busy working on a much-needed, and way overdue, update of our website. Now we’re in the final stages of testing, doing research, taking additional photos, etc. It’s been a huge project because we had fallen behind on technology, as well as cataloging and organizing our inventory. But we’ve still been buying wonderful items to share with you. Join us on September 8th as we reopen our virtual gallery doors! Since we can’t travel to Japan at the moment, bring a little bit of Japan to your home! Here is a preview of some of the new items we’ll be adding.

Another preview of items, including folk art and a folding screen, that we plan to bring. We will add some of these to the Mizuya website after the show.

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…

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...
