Zentner Collection: Antique Japanese Tansu, Asian Works of Art
Truly beautiful Japanese antique small earthenware jar from the Shigaraki kiln. Made from the red clay of Lake Biwa, this jar is covered with a thick mineral glaze which has dripped and pooled. It has a lip which has been dimpled for pouring and a wonderful indented area that has been blackened in the firing process. The ash glaze on the lip and on the inside is a lovely green color. An impression of the texture of the material the clay with formed on adds another layer of interest to this jar. Edo Period. Size: 8 1/2" high x 8 1/2" wide.
