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 chawan comes in its own signed box together with a cleaning cloth and is
in unused condition.
