Deishi Shibuya 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 Fuyu-Oni tsu-tsu (winter) chawan is the second example that has been offered on this site and comes with a cleaning cloth as well as the signed box. It was thrown using a Korean style kick wheel and then cut before glazing and firing in his traditional wood-fired climbing kiln.
