Haiyu Tokkuri (灰釉徳利)
This is the Kyoto ware crafted by TAKEMURA, Shigeo (竹村繁男).
He uses the glaze made by cedar tree-ash ingeredients.
As you see, there are many lines like meandering river made by comb.
While he turns the potter's wheel to shape bottle, the patterns are naturally made by drawing vertically.
Height : 12.6 cm
Width : 7.8 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.
