Enyosai Kaki (塩窯彩花器)
This is the Takeo ware crafted by MATSUO, Jun (松尾潤).
The pink-dots pattern is one of the features and he named it "enyosai".
The pattern has been shown because of firing in the room dedicated to salt glaze, which is the third place of the climbing kiln.
Thrown salt into the kiln fills with steam, and compounds with the silicic acid, so beautiful design created with kiln effects shows up.
Height : 37 cm
Diameter : 39.5 cm
MATSUO studied under IWABUCHI, Shigeya in Kyoto in early life. Based on the skill of Karatsu ware, he tries to make new style of pottery.
