Ryokuenyu Hanaire (緑塩釉花入)
This is the Takeo ware crafted by MATSUO, Jun (松尾潤).
He made the shape by throwning the potter's wheel.
And clay with less iron is used in this case, however white slip decoration isn't perfomed.
Like how to make 'enyukosai kaki', the vase is filled into the heatproof container with charcoal after firing.
It's fired in the gas kiln a second time to emerge different color.
The vase has turned into quality green color due to repetitive firing.

MATSUO trained ceramic a lot in Kyoto in early life. A wide rage of style can be seen from his artworks.
