Karatsu Ware Yumino Kiln Brushed Slip Design Jar | Japan, 18C


A Takeo-type Karatsu ware small jar baked around the Yumino kiln in the Odashi area in the southern part of Takeo. This jar was probably made in the middle of the Edo period because the engobe is used smaller. Ko-Takeo is known for its powerful work that combines various decoration techniques from China and Korea. This piece is rare because this kind of jar usually has multi-layered decoration, but only the brushed mark covered with transparent glaze shows a wabi-sabi taste.

There are minor kiln scratches entirely, also a chip and several short hairlines on the rim can be seen, but the condition is generally good.
