Japanese Antiques, 6-4-2011

I saw some very interesting pieces today.

The first piece is a white slip bowl from Korea, early Yi. I love the wear of it, the pinholes and amamori.

The next pieces are fabric from the beginning of the Edo period. Very old. Hita Shibori.

The next is a sumi-e from the late Muromachi period by Senka Sosetsu. It is the same piece featured in the magazine I have included pictures of.

The next is a tea ceremony kama. I am hoping to be able to buy it during the next auction I go to on the 15th.

The last piece is a Seto piece from the Muromachi period. It isn’t clear what it is, tea caddy or what ever. It is used now by tea practitioners but it isn’t originally a tea piece. It was found in the discard pile of an abandoned kiln.
