This is Yamada's new Tenmoku bowl.

The black glaze increases in depth and the brown glaze coexists with the black glaze, blending naturally with the black glaze.
Although the elder potter is 73 years old, his pursuit of the Tenmoku bowl is far from over.

This is undoubtedly one of the best pieces of his long career as a potter.
We believe there is no other contemporary ceramic artist who can compare to him in terms of the quality of his
Tortoise shell glazed work.
It is not yet available for sale to the public, so please take this opportunity to buy it.


Tortoise shell glazed bowl

It comes with a purple fukusa.

Height:5.5cm (2.16
18cm (7.08nch)
total weight: 287g
Condition: New

The shade similar to this tortoiseshell is an effect created with two different glazes.
This glaze one of his lifework.

This bowl was originally born in Jiangxi's Jizhou kiln on the Southern Song dynasty in China.

His Tortoise shell pattern bowl is as sophisticated as the Southern Song dynasty's Jizhou kiln.

And it has his unique beautiful glow with deep glaze.

The glaze is not monotonous. A beautiful deep amber color (translucent yellow-brown) floating in deep black creates exquisite contrast.

Watching it feels like being sucked into a bowl.

The Tortoise shell glazed bowl was acclaimed by Polish film director Jesy Skolimowski.

At the Kagurazaka restaurant, where he ate when he came to Japan, he met Tortoise shell glazed bowlof Yamada Taizo, and the relationship began and became close.

Enjoy your meal in a practical and artistic bowl.
