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. The typical Hagi white glaze on this winter Chawan uses a mixture of straw ashes that Deishi has refined and modified during his career. 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. The chawan is around 10 years old, unused and has no damage. You will note that the calligraphy on the wooden box lid is slightly faded and that the seal on the lid has only been partly stamped.
