Zarchived - Tokoname "Pear Skin" Kyusu
Perfectly balanced with a built in ceramic strainer. The black portion of the body represents where the smoke made contact with the red clay. The texture on the body or "pear skin", as it is referred to in Japanese, is feldspar mixed into the clay. The lid rests recessed into the body which keeps it from slipping off. Please see more of the "Dancing Potter" Murakoshi Takao in the collection.
Comes with its own signed wooden box
