Uno
Toru was born in Kyoto in 1935 and he studied under leading potters, Mitsuo Kano and Yaichi Kusube. He established his own kiln in 1961 and has exhibited at the Nitten exhibitions many times and eventually became a judge of the Nitten. In 1965, he exhibited at the Berlin Arts Festival during three years spent in Europe. In 1978, he became a member of the International Academy of Ceramics (IAC) in Geneva. This summer chawan does not appear to have been used and had no damage. It has Uno sanís impressed seal in the centre of the foot ring and I believe dates from the 1970s.
