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 (Odaiba-gama)
for many days. This summer teabowl has Deishi’s impressed seal mark just outside the foot ring
(at in the image above) and a cut to the foot ring (warikodai). The dark markings
in the images are inclusions within the stoneware body of the bowl. There is
no wooden box with the bowl hence the price.
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.
