Seigan was born in 1952 and is a member of the Hagi Association
of Ceramic Artists. He
is self taught and works out of the Kousaian Kiln, which he opened in 1987.
Hagi ware is closely associated with the Tea Ceremony in Japan and this teabowl (chawan) shows the glaze
crawl effect (Kairagi) used by many Hagi artists. The body of the teabowl is
made of a red clay and the foot ring (kodai) is cut with grooves (wari).
Besides the signed wooden box the teabowl also comes supplied with a cleaning
cloth marked with the potter’s seal.
