Takegoshi Shoichiro was a fourth generation Kutani potter, who was born in 1927. He won numerous prizes during his lifetime and died in 1985. This chawan doesn’t appear to have been used but the wooden box shows colour changes due to the age. Takegoshi san has achieved an interesting crystalline glaze effect, which has proved quite difficult to photograph especially inside the bowl.
