Kato Juemon was born in 1894 and potted in the hills north of Tajimi where he had his kiln, Yasaka- gama. He won many prizes for his work during his lifetime and was an Intangible Cultural Asset of Gifu Prefecture. He died in 1974. This nezumi-shino chawan is in very good condition, without any damage or restoration like all other items on this website. In the base of the bowl there are two small unglazed raised areas that will have adhered to the surface in the firing process and would be seen as chance happenings that bring an added dimension to the chawan. The box is clearly marked and Kato sanís incised mark can be seen on the underside of the bowl.
