Tanii Hozan
was born in Gojo-shi, Nara Prefecture in 1953 and graduated from Osaka University of Arts and Crafts in 1975. He built his first kiln in Shigaraki in 1981 and then succeeded to the Tanikan kiln, which was opened around 1870, in 1983 after marrying the previous potter’s daughter.
  These yunomis have been thrown and distorted slightly before the crackle glaze has been expertly applied. Finally, they were fired in the main Tanikan kiln. They come with their own card box and you will note that besides the impressed potter’s seal near the foot ring there is also a seal on hand made paper with an exhibition number that relates to his
London exhibition in March 2013.
