Deishi Shibuya throws all of chawan and yunomis using a Korean style kick wheel and then fires them in his traditional wood-fired climbing kiln for many days. He is one of the “elder statesmen” of the Hagi pottery tradition, being the Chairman of the Hagi Traditional Industrial (Handicrafts) Association for the last 20 years or so. He has won many prizes for his work, including the International Art Culture award in 1984.

This is the second such chawan that I have offered for sale and, although the glazes used are fairly typical of Deishi’s work, the incised and painted decoration is quite unusual.
