Hakuhoyu Tokkuri (白鳳釉徳利)
This is the Kyoto ware crafted by TAKEMURA, Shigeo (竹村繁男).
A unique glaze is used and that contains ash of grapevine which he grew.
The glaze has been shrinked in the kiln and that caused the vase to put a change.

Width : 8.8 cm
He burns various plants and picks up as glaze to bring out quality of ash. It’s interesting that color varies depending on settings or temperature, even though same glaze is used.
